PS56: Rural Education Expert Daisy Dyer Duerr

In this episode of the show, I have the pleasure of speaking with the most fun name in education, Daisy Dyer Duerr, or as I would address her if it was normal, D Cubed.   Daisy was named the 2014 Digital Principal of the Year by the NASSP and has also been nominated for several Bammy awards. Daisy and I talk about her education background, what she’ll be presenting about at Model Schools this next week, what she would do differently if she could start over as an administrator, and rural education. She’ll be coming out with a new book this fall with another eduhero of mine, Mr. Derek McCoy, who I interviewed way back in Episodes 5 and 6 when I was just starting out podcasting.

Thank you so much for tuning into the show. Principally Speaking is a proud member of the Education Podcast Network, where you can check out other great shows like Daniel Bauer’s Better Leaders Better Schools Podcast. I had the honor of being a recent guest on Daniel’s show and talked about my experience as a newer principal. He also was a recent guest on my show, Episode 51 if you’d like to check it out.

I hope you’ve had a chance to catch some great conferences this summer. I’m currently planning on attending and presenting at two upcoming Indiana conferences in Warsaw on Monday July 25th and in Auburn at DeKalb High School on Tuesday July 26th.   I taught science at DeKalb High for 9 years so it will be great to connect with several former colleagues. Don’t forget that EdCamp Leadership is taking place July 11th all across the country. You can check out @edcampldr on Twitter to find out where EdCamp Leadership is happening near you. Thank you to amazing human Joe Mazza for leading this effort…I had a powerful talk with him back in Episode 47. Finally, EdCamp Fort Wayne is taking place Thursday July 28th at The Summit, which is an amazing venue. A big shoutout to Jennifer Brower, Andy Deatrick, Alison Schlotfeldt and Mandy Woollacott for putting this on.   Head to @edcampFW for more information.
