Season 2, Episode 28: 1st Anniversary Special Episode with EPSD Superintendent Kristen Campbell

This week, we will take a slight break from the weekly Coronavirus updates to reflect back and look forward as we celebrate the one-year anniversary of the release of the podcast. It is a time of great thanks and recognition for the many students and staff that have participated in telling the stories of our 9th graders here at Emmaus High School. Even in these uncertain and crazy times, we can come back to the idea that we have amazing people doing amazing things at our school!

To celebrate and get perspective from the district level, there was no better choice than to feature EPSD Superintendent Kristen Campbell on this episode. 

Of course, we ask Mrs. Campbell about her 9th grade experience, but we also get perspective on what it is like to lead a school district through this time and how she is dealing with the challenges. We talk about how the district's focus on technology just happened to come at the right time and how to build a culture when people are scattered throughout the district and not in our buildings.  We finish with Campbell's vision of what she hopes the 9th grade experience should be like for all students, including her own children, as we prepare them to become members of the global community.
