Episode 50: Leading the Way with Vernon Wright


As we look forward to the new school year with enthusiasm and fresh hope of returning to normal schooling, we will need even more leadership from our school leaders. Students, teachers, and parents faced an unprecedented shift in education last year which will no, undoubtedly over the next couple of years. We will have to call upon leadership for guidance in areas of social and emotional intelligence and mental-health fitness in the post-COVID-19era.

In this episode, we speak to Vernon about his journey into school and district leadership, why he is passionate about education leadership, and his success model, which he describes as Believe. Study. Hustle. Manifest. Repeat. We also speak about the chapter he wrote for the book 100 No-Nonsense Things that ALL Teachers Should STOP Doing
