Wonderfully done!

I am in the process of getting my Masters to move into administration and find this podcast wonderfully enlightening!!

Forever motivating

The Empowered Principal Podcast is a must listen. During the onset of the pandemic I began listening to many podcasts in search of anything to get me through leading a school through a global pandemic. While I enjoyed a variety of topics, I’m so grateful to have landed here. Angela’s real school examples, her enthusiasm and energy are forever motivating for me. After a few episodes I was hooked and signed on as a client for 1:1 coaching. Best decision I have made while navigating school leadership while dealing with some pretty stressful life stuff.

Relevant, relatable, informative

As a brand new elementary principal, this podcast has been so valuable to my growth and development, and I’m using it as a resource weekly-I truly feel supported by Angela‘s podcast!

Leadership Advice with a Twist!

I’m binging on this podcast and loving the content so much. Angela puts a unique spin on her leadership advice for the field of education. So good!!!

Angela is the best!

I can’t say enough about the help Angela have me through a very difficult time in my life. I didn’t play it safe and had some failures, but she helped me lift my head and continue!

Sooooo helpful

I’m not an administrator, but an instructional coach. Angela’s work has been so incredibly helpful to me. Learning to understand your own and others’ emotions and reactions is a huge part of the job of every school leader. Angela will help you stay centered and grounded, and will give you very practical and doable steps in becoming the calm and responsive leader we all hope to be. Subscribe—you will gain so much from it!!

Wow! This is EXACTLY what I have been looking for!

I am so thrilled to have found this podcast. I've been learning that leadership is really all about leading my internal thoughts and reactions so that I can make intentional decisions and find peace in my job. Thank you for providing this podcast to help me with that.

92. Mental Health

We have been exploring this topic at my school. We have adopted Conscious Discipline and it is more about the adults in the building at this point so we can address the mental health issues of our students.

So excited to have found this podcast!!

I am so happy to have stumbled upon this podcast — I have been looking for personal development that really spoke to me as a new elementary principal. One who is feeling overwhelmed, exhausted & impatient. The first episode stopped me in my tracks- I feel like I finally found someone who is going to discuss topics that are real and honest about this profession-vulnerability at its best. Thank you soooo much!

Wonderful Coach

I started listening to The Empowered Principal podcast so that I was not alone as a school principal. After learning from her on the podcasts I decided to have Angela coach me. Best decision ever! I highly recommend you send her an email and get started. There is so little support for our profession and this is hugely helpful!


Angela has helped me navigate leading by looking at my perceptions, thoughts and beliefs. She has provided tools to empower me by taking responsibility for my thinking by deeply understanding it and navigate next steps!

Thank you!

Thankful to have come across this podcast. I’m a principal at a small charter school where we run things a little different. This podcast has been a breathe of fresh air and has allowed me to look at my job through a lens that personally makes more sense to me. Thank you for all you do!


Thanks for the podcast, helpful information as I am working on my degree to become an educational leader.


This podcast has been so useful to me as school leader. In addition to practical how-to tips, Angela also offers advice on how to get to the root of issues by managing your mind. In a very stressful but important job, managing your mind is vital.

Applicable ideas and valuable insight

I have listened to several of your podcasts and have found them to be helpful and insightful. I appreciate that Mrs. Kelly is realistic, honest and open about how to be an empowered and passionate leader while still holding onto your sanity and your joy!

Leadership that Rocks

Angela weaves awesome leadership skills, experiences, and action steps to help you be the best leader you can be who inspires instead of dictate your staff. Great insights to help you each and every day.

So many "nuggets" of wisdom !

I get so many "nuggets" of wisdom here! I love that someone finally addressed real topics for educators who are in the trenches. The topics are real and relatable-- and I find myself relating so much of the coaching to my own life, not just work life.

Empowered Principal

I absolutely love this podcast! I just accepted my first principalship and this kind of support is exactly what I was looking for! Thank you Angela!

I’m hooked!

Loving your podcast Angela! Not a principal, nor do I plan to be, but find everything is relatable to classroom teachers as well. Love that you are staying true to you & the principal I so enjoyed working for! I can’t get enough of the topics relating to time!! Thank you!

Wow just wow

Angela is so full of love and light and if you are interested in how you can make your daily life better this podcast is for you! I’m not in the educational field and I still come away from each podcast with so much value. The STEAR technique is helpful and I apply this in my business job; it’s been helpful to learn how to navigate my thoughts. I can’t believe this Podcast is free and available to everyone! It’s not every day you get insight from someone who’s been trained by OPRAH'S Life Coach.

An amazing new show!

This podcast is amazing whether you're in the field of education or not. Angela is a great coach who is incredibly fun to listen to and has a unique ability to break down difficult concepts and mind-managing techniques to help you manage your thinking so that you can handle whatever comes your way. It's must-listen!

New Perspectives

A great podcast to help us principals re-examine how we look at things we encounter on a daily basis. The topics are real and pertinent to what we face as a school principal. Definitely worth your time to listen!

Eye-opening and thoughtful!

Can’t wait to hear more podcasts! I am currently a teacher looking to get my administrative credential to become a principal. It is great to hear the good, the bad and the ugly from someone who has done a little bit of everything. I am looking forward to continuing the coaching exercises and hearing more about her personal experiences!
