In Podcast Episode 60 of the Time for Teachership Podcast, I am
talking with Joyce Akridge who has dedicated 44 years of her life
to Indianapolis Public Schools. She has served in various positions
from principal mentor to lead principal where she has demonstrated
personal and professional excellence in leadership for the success
of all students. She now runs her own coaching company with her
daughter to help other school leaders achieve success in their own
In this episode, Joyce discusses what’s possible in her dreams for education while critiquing the current inequities that still need to be defeated. Students don’t often expect their lives outside of academia to matter to school staff but what has made Joyce so loved by her student communities is her care for students in all of their potential whether that is social, emotional, etc.
