👋🏼 Hi, I’m Melody!
I'm passionate about education and leadership and have been geeking out about how to create excellence in schools for over 25 years.
I'm a former math teacher, curriculum specialist, and assistant principal, and principal (aka Believer-in-Chief, Chief Storyteller, Head Culture Creator, and Chief Energy Officer). Currently, I'm one of the co-founders and Chief Experience Officer of Warm Demanders and the Chief Learning Officer for the Northern Kentucky Cooperative for Educational Services.
On top of being geeky about school leadership, I LOVE digital tools that amplify school culture and student success. Ultimately, I want to capture and inspire the greatness in others and have an unshakeable belief that education is the great equalizer.
Oh ... and I'm always ready to shake up the status quo to be remarkable for students and teachers.😉
We know time can be scarce and you're going to watch the lessons when it fits your schedule.
✔️ Designed to be easily digested!
✔️ No assessments or running around necessary!
✔️ Video lessons and downloads, just like this clip.
I really like the compass point activity. As someone who is trained in Clifton Strengths Finder, I love learning more about the people I serve and lead. Not only does this help us get to know each other (build relationships, gain insight, get to know one another better), it also allows us to better understand what people need and how to reach potential. All of this builds culture, provides clarity, and allows us to be strategic. Love it!

I love the idea of “everyone in the building is a leader.” As the people who abide within the walls of our school buildings who are witnesses to all of the amazing things happening, we all have so much influential power to be ambassadors of the positive when we are out in the community. Making sure we “remark” about all the “remarkable” purple cows when we have opportunities will make our positives loud! 😊
