Traditional feedback looks back on a past that can't be changed, and that's one reason it isn't always well-received. But when we shift to a practice called feedforward, where our focus is on the future, we can have a much more powerful and positive impact on our students, peers, and other people in our lives. In this episode, I interview Joe Hirsch, author of The Feedback Fix, about how the feedforward approach works.

In this episode, Theresa and Spike discuss how 2018 is going while Jessica is Ice Fishing! As the discussion unfolds, Theresa talked about how she has been using the app Todoist. She uses Todoist to organize all of the tasks that she has to do throughout the week. Todoist connects with her Gmail and allows her to schedule time to get the important things accomplished. Theresa also talked about she continues to use Evernote. She takes all her notes, articles, tasks, and documents and scans them to Evernote

 

Spike shared how he stays organized throughout the day by using the SAMs Time Tracker System. This system, developed by former Principal Mark Shellinger, creates a calendar for Principals to track their time and work on improving their time spent with instruction.

 

Please share any apps/tips/tricks you use for staying organized. We'll be tackling email next, so share those things, too via twitteremail, or commenting on the blog post.

In this episode, we chat with Lindsy Stumpenhorst, elementary principal in Illinois, also known as

“Principal in Boots.” Lindsy shares all about leading an amazing staff, living in the country, balance,

using social media, and her one word for 2018: Awe. Have you heard of Instagram? Spike and Lindsy

both work hard to convince Jessica to revitalize her Instagram account and connect where the action is.

Something interesting about Lindsy is her family was in Josh Turner’s music video for his song, Find

Me a Baby! Check it out here: Josh Turner (about 30 seconds in). Not only does Lindsy have horses, but

she also has dogs that size too (we got to see them while we're recording, so couldn't help but ask for

photo evidence to share!

Spike discussed his use of the SAMs Time Tracker System for Principals. He is going to their National Conference in a few weeks. For more information, the SAMs Time Tracker System, check out their website.

Lindsy is currently reading:  Love Languages of Children and Wild Card: 7 Steps to an Educator’s Creative Breakthrough  

She also recommended the app Pocket, a handy app that lets you save tweets, posts, articles to return to later.

We hope you enjoy listening to Lindsy as much as we did. You can connect with her at:
