Yet again, I’m so amazed by the women I get to talk to on this show. It gives me hope for the world every, single time… Rachel is a teacher, an activist, a leader, and a hugely kind hearted person.
She tackles big, challenging topics of racial equity, school inclusion, new models for leadership, and more. From being a school teacher to a principal to an educational leadership coach, she really approaches these topics with heart and courage.
Rachel tells stories about how she was a bit of an unlikely leader in this work, given her background from a small town in Texas, but was pushed by her students and life experiences to go deeper into her values and speak out.
We talk about courageous conversations, deeper listening, and how we can all do better. She also breaks down the work of her company, SPARK for Humanity, and how it came to be born (even when she didn’t expect it). And the “naked” moment she cried her eyes out while running a training in front of 250 school leaders… a moment that changed everything, and catalyzed her work.
Rachel is incredibly bright and passionate, and another amazing example of how we can play bigger and make new choices.
