On this episode, we interview Becky Latham, the leadership teacher at Keithley Middle School in Washington state.
Becky talks about how she has seen culture on her campus grow rich by being open to feedback, saying YES more, and making her leadership programs more accessible. Working at a school with a high number of students with adverse childhood experiences (ACES), Becky and her team have been very intentional to find ways of involving students early on to give them the skills and motivation they need to be great leaders.
This podcast is a great reminder of engaging students from diverse backgrounds to be part of building a great campus culture!
