Teru earned a master’s degree in Global and International Education and a bachelor’s degree in Asian Studies. She spent over a decade as an education journalist and college consultant while raising her three children in the public schools of Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo and California and returned with her family to her hometown, New York City, in 2018.

 

Show Highlights

  • Teru’s  journey on creating a family unit with values that are dependent on everybody appreciating one another 
  • Teru’s plan on how to solve massive attrition and recruitment dilemmas  
  • Teru pulls apart what it means to practice and respect social-emotional values

“Don't give up. Just don't give up because I think now more than ever this country needs leaders who are advocating on behalf of our children because I think it's not No Child Left Behind. I feel like all our kids are getting left behind right now. With all that's going on politically in this country, kids with so much technology in their hands, they are seeing it all and I don't think they have any idea how to make sense of it and it's our responsibility to look out for them because the world that they are going to be going into is a world that we are creating for them and I don't think it's going to be an easy place.”

-Teru Clavel

Joshua is a middle school administrator in North Texas. After graduating college with a Fine Arts degree and working in the graphic design field for a number of years, Joshua returned to school to attain his teaching certificate. Joshua worked as an Art teacher and coached at the middle school level for 6 years. Inspired to affect change at the campus level and in education, Joshua completed his Masters in Educational Administration, and he has spent the past 7 years as a middle school administrator. In addition to being an administrator, Joshua is the creator and host of Aspire: The Leadership Development Podcast. The podcast is designed to help those who are looking to build their leadership capacity by providing an opportunity to learn from the most experienced and accomplished educational leaders.

Joshua is passionate about reconciliation and believes that working together creates an environment that fosters innovation and growth, yielding both academic and social success. Utilizing restorative practices guides Joshua in building healthy relationships and community at his school.

Joshua and his wife, Leslie, became foster parents in 2011, and had the privilege of adopting three of their five children. Joshua is trained in trauma-informed practices for meeting the emotional, social and behavioral needs of children who have been through adverse childhood experiences, which Joshua also applies to his role as an administrator.

 

Show Highlights

  • Use Joshua’s tools to break the box: Overcoming stigmas,  labels, and bias in education
  • Learn how leaders are made in the art room and on the field
  • Student success is impacted by movement and creativity. Hear Joshua’s tips and resources for connecting the body to the brain 
  • Create an immense impact in 30 seconds
  • Joshua shares how good leaders find solutions by pushing boundaries and challenge the status quo
  • How to avoid a structure of fear and find a system that is better for the emotional stability of your learning community with restorative practices
  • Working with aspiring leaders will help hone your passion and enhance instructional practices

 

“Unfortunately, a lot of our students don't know how to act socially, but also how to reflect and to change that behavior. Their behavior is a language really. If we're able to understand that language, it helps us better as educators. My goal is to have our teachers, everyone that we hire, whoever's in my building to make sure that we are hitting the social emotional needs of our students just as much as we're doing the academic, because if one is lacking, the other one can't thrive.” 

-Joshua Stamper
