In this episode, I have a round-table discussion with Bryn Spence about current issues for school leaders. Some feedback that we have received about the show is that people appreciate more dialogue between practising administrators. In the episode, Bryn and I try to speak about problems and solutions in our schools and hope that our conversation might help you to find solutions for issues you face as well.
Bryn Spence is the principal of High Park School in Stony Plain, Alberta. He has an extensive background in behaviour programs and inclusion for students with special needs. He has a Masters in Education from the University of Calgary.
