Customized Solutions for K-12 Educators
Lisa Kinnaman won’t come out and say it, but – in terms of school improvement – the schools and districts who are participating in her projects are thriving.
(Scroll down to the podcast link at the bottom to skip straight to the good stuff.)
As the State School Improvement Coordinator for Idaho, Kinnaman has been hard at work over the past few years figuring out how to get the most out of improvement and professional development dollars. What she and the entire network of educators, administrators, coaches and leaders have done in that time is nothing short of impressive.
In this 24-minute podcast, I talk to her about the nuts and bolts of their program and Lisa lets us in on what’s made Idaho so successful.

We’ve been having some great conversations with people lately about our podcast series. Here’s what people are telling us: We Want More!
In the same way that we consistently hear teachers tell us how much they value having time to collaborate with their colleagues, it seems that most of you out there are eager to hear other schools tell their stories.
We’ll continue the series as long as we keep getting the kind of feedback that we’ve received so far, so if you enjoy hearing how other people have implemented PTL, please leave a comment or shoot us an email to let us know. We’d love to hear from you.
In Podcast #3, I talk to Joy Landsdowne of Glenwood Elementary School. We had a great discussion about how Glenwood got started with PTL, what they did to ensure universal buy-in, how they moved forward, and what kind of results that they’ve seen. This is a longer podcast at around 32 minutes long, but it’s one of our best yet, so we’ll hope you’ll find a corner of your day to listen along. If you’d rather have time to comb through the content slowly, you can download a transcript of the interview from our Resources Page.
(Don’t forget: Due to the size of the audio file, it may take a few moments to load.)
We've joined forces to deliver solutions that are more customized, more flexible, and more powerful. Everything you know and love about PTL is here…click below for more information.
