Episode 066: State Superintendent

EDIT: I previously posted this episode with a previous interview with Superintendent Hofmeister, it has since been updated.

Every year I am incredibly fortunate to be able to connect with Oklahoma’s State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister. This past year, and no doubt looking forward, was quite an unusual year for #oklaed. A pandemic not only devastated our country it also hi-lighted and exasperated many of the systemic issues of racism and inequities that exist throughout our country and our beloved system of education. New Year’s Day is one of my favorite times of year, I love reflecting and dreaming! I want to challenge you to lean in, reflect, and purposefully plan how you will be a part of the conversation of change.

I want to thank Superintendent Hofmeister for always taking the time to meet with me and reflect on the past year while thinking to the year ahead. You can follow the Superintendent on Facebook or on Twitter @joy4ok.

Reflection Questions:

  1. What were the highlights from the last semester of this school year?
  2. How did you grow as an education?
  3. What were some of the lowlights from the last semester of this school year?
  4. What kind of lessons did you learn from them?
