Alex Craig - First Nations MESA Program Director

If You Give a Principal a Podcast...

Welcome to If You Give a Principal a Podcast, a podcast production of the Harrah Elementary School Associated Student Body  and the Mt. Adams School District. I’m your host, and Principal, at Harrah Elementary, Rob McCracken.  Today’s episode was originally created with the purpose of being shared with our staff as part of a recent professional development session regarding Social and Emotional Learning and equity in education.  The resulting conversation was too good not to share and reflected the type of content we hoped to capture when we set out to create this podcast.  Our guest today is Alex Craig. Alex is a self-described movie buff and a 2011 White Swan High School graduate.  He graduated from Eastern Washington University in 2016 with a Bachelors Degree in Visual Communication Design with an emphasis on print design and web design.  He is currently the program director for the First Nations MESA Program at Heritage University in Toppenish, Washington.  Up First Nations MESA engages high school, middle school and elementary schools in the Yakima Valley in math and science-based activities to prepare underrepresented students for STEM based careers.  This episode was recorded during the COVID-19 pandemic. Social distancing guidelines were maintained as all participants joined from the safe confines of their homes, offices, classrooms, or cars via Zoom. We apologize ahead of time for any audio irregularities caused by bandwidth limitations.  A big shout out goes to Cesar Hernandez, DeeDee Gasseling, and Hayley storm for making this interview happen.  We do want to let you know this episode does contain a singular reference of a word used as a term of abuse and disparagement towards members of the LGBTQ+ community that may be disturbing or triggering to some. Although we do not condone the use of these terms, we felt it was appropriate in the context of this discussion.  If this is your first time listening to the podcast, welcome to the show and if you’re a returning listener thanks for coming back. So, pull up a chair and see what happens when you give a principal a podcast.

Alexandra Carroll (Alex Craig) - Author of New York and Paris

The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry

They're two of the dining capitals of the world and they're explored (and beautifully photographed) by Alexandra Carroll in her books, New York: An Inspired Wander Through Manhattan and the Brooklyn Boroughs and Paris: An Inspired Wander Through the City of Lights. So it's no surprise that we talk about memorable bagels and croissants, the fact that Alex had to eat a lot of cheese to get the job done, as well as remarkable venues that are not Michelin-starred institutions – from Clown Bar, with its surprising history, to Dans Le Noir, a restaurant staffed by blind people that serves people completely in the dark. Then there's the New York trend for drinking broth like coffee! Alex also shares some of the easy-to-overlook gems in both cities (including a museum located in an elevator shaft in Tribeca) and how she went about producing both books. We also talk about how she was my first editor (as Alex Craig) and how she effectively bankrolled my first trip to Paris, as I bought an airfare to the French capital as her employee. And we touch on her incredible record as a book publisher – she was involved in the launch of Hannah Kent's bestselling book, Burial Rites, which is going to be turned into a movie featuring Jennifer Lawrence.
