Jill Harrison Berg is an educator with nearly 30 years of experience working in all kinds of schools. Her new book Leading in Sync: Teacher Leaders and Principals Working Together for Student Learning (2018, ASCD) is the richest resource I’ve encountered in the last decade for people in schools who are ready to build the trust necessary for real collaboration and marshal the vast resources latent in every faculty for the best possible learning outcomes for kids. This episode will be of special interest to educators now working in schools, but anyone who works on a team in any kind of organization will benefit from what Jill has to say.

Featured Musician

Mark Wright’s piano playing defined the soundtrack of  “The Idea About Writing You Most Want to Die” (episode 004 ). For decades, Mark taught high school English September to June in Bergen County, NJ. Each August was New Orleans, playing piano in the band at Preservation Hall. (Fun fact: his piano teacher’s piano teacher’s piano teacher was Johannes Brahms.) And no: I cannot not smile when I hear Mr. Wright at the keys.
