Smart Thinking Podcast with Ted Neitzke

Website: Smart Thinking Podcast

I hope all teachers have the opportunity to hear Ted Neitzke speak in person. It is impossible to leave a “Ted Talk” without feeling recharged and ready to tackle any challenge had on. The Smart Thinking podcast is a weekly kick-start full of wit and wisdom to help teachers focus on what’s important in life.

Ted serves as the CEO of CESA 6 in Oshkosh Wisconsin. CESA 6 is a not-for-profit organization and serves 39 public school districts. Before that, Ted was a superintendent, principal, and teacher.
