Effective leaders balance being in control and being a friend to those they lead. Teachers can struggle with managing their classrooms and helping students reach academic success. Tune in to learn how effective teachers lead from the side so that they can build relationships that last with their kids but also maintain order in the classroom.


  • We gotta learn our own version of leading from the side
  • Relationships are everything in education
  • You can always tone things down but its almost impossible to stiffen up down the road
  • Don’t be a dictator and don’t be a friend
  • Leadership takes time to develop
