253: Speak So They Listen

We as educators talk all day long. We don't spend much time on our own speaking ability. It's time to focus on speaking effectively so your audience (students, teachers, parents, and community members) can hear you loud and clear. We want to evoke change and growth- not become talking heads. We have one voice and an amazing podium. Tune in to hear 10 tips to speak more effectively in your edu-role (plus, learn a fun acronym to level up your speaking game).


  • Speak so your audience can hear you. Otherwise you're wasting everyone's time.
  • I was prioritizing pacing over proficiency.
  • What's the likelihood it will stick?
  • Allowing folks to listen is an entryway..but we can't stop there.
  • They will lean in and listen when you make it apply to them.
  • Personalize your message... from their perspective, interest, and personality traits
