In the 29th episode of the show, I have the privilege of speaking with George Philhower, Assistant Superintendent at Western Wayne Schools in Cambridge City, Indiana. In this district and at Lincoln Jr./Sr. High School they are developing a school-within-a-school model that allows students to move at their own pace and take their own path to success. George explained that he has leaned on the Innovations High School in Salt Lake City, Utah for support and that their Principal Kenneth Grover has been a great deal of help in this process. Mr. Grover will be presenting at the Richmond eLearning Conference this summer if you're interested in meeting him and learning more about this school model. Here is a very inspiring presentation about his personal philosophy and vision for Innovations High School:

Next episode I will be talking with the inspiring Dave Burgess, author of Teach Like a Pirate. He will be the Keynote speaker at the Integrated eLearning Conference at East Noble High School on July 21 in Kendallville, Indiana.
