The Influence of Ideas with Rachael Lehr

#InspirationInfluenceImpact #AuthenticityInEDU #TLAPdownunder Karen Caswell


My guest this episode, Rachael Lehr, shares how the ideas and big dreams of others and books have inspired and influenced her teaching, learning and life journey. She also discusses her belief in the power of people and the human spirit as being vital for personal growth, and how she hopes to leave people better, and sparkle, through her presence, influence, or relationship with her.
