As a child growing up in northern Louisiana, my parents and most people will attest to “as a child and now an adult, I have always marched to the beat of a different drum.” Some people call it “the child who goes against the grain.” Someone who quickly notices and says “um let me try this way instead.” Perhaps, you resonate with these very words and shared experiences from your childhood.

Teachers, principals, and other professionals can certainly relate to marching to the beat of a different drum. We do this all the time by analyzing information in different ways, presenting lessons, explaining things to students or others in different ways. It’s our niche…it’s what we do that makes up stand out among the crowd, live our Absolute best and march to the beat of a different drum!

As many of you, I am in the middle of writing my 1st book! Yes, long time coming, I am super excited to be on this journey. Though, the book will be specifically for teachers, principals and service professionals who service the educational industry.
