Be the Leader You Set Out to Be (with Baruti Kafele)

Meeting students where they are and intentionally addressing their needs is the key to equity and effective teaching, according to Principal Kafele, in Episode 9 of Season 6. He emphasizes the importance of self-reflection and assessing one’s own leadership to continuously improve. In this episode, Principal Kafele addresses:
