072: Lose your idea - leave it to the team with Pete Hall

Professional Development Agent Pete Hall, 12-year veteran school principal on sabbatical, proudly offers professional development experiences, workshops, mentoring support, keynote addresses, and other educational consulting services full-time. After a teaching career that spanned three states and included primary, intermediate, and middle-school positions, Mr. Hall served as principal of Anderson Elementary School in Reno, Nevada. When he took over Anderson Elementary in 2002, it was the only school in Nevada to have failed to make AYP for four consecutive years. Two short years later, it was the only Title I school in the state of Nevada to earn “High Achieving” designation. Subsequently, he served as the principal of Sheridan Elementary, a Title I school in Spokane, which earned accolades from the Washington State Office of the Superintendent for its growth and achievement, and as principal of Shaw Middle, another Title I school in Spokane, which earned recognition for its college & career readiness indicators and growth.
