A Very Special Woman Running a Very Special School Right Here in Sarasota -- with Dr. Sherika Evans of Suncoast School for Innovative Studies | Episode 039

Not every child who attends school fits within the traditional school model. (I've often thought I didn't and that was many years ago!) In today's episode, you'll hear about an innovative charter school - led by one of the most enthusiastic people you'll ever meet - that virtually customizes and certainly personalizes the educational experience for both students and parents.

I'm very pleased to welcome today, Dr. Sherika Evans - Headmaster- of Suncoast School for Innovative Studies where their philosophy is: Every Student. Every Family. Every Day.

You'll hear Dr. Evans share ...

  • One thing most people don’t know her
  • What a charter school is and why Sarasota County got behind the effort to open 3 of them
  • How Suncoast School is different from public schools
  • The innovative mentor model they use to connect children and parents at a deeper level
  • How growing up poor in Mississippi motivated Dr. Evans to get her doctorate in education

... and much much more!

Thank you for stopping by today. It is my hope that you will listen ... learn ... and connect!
