Episode 72: Mandy Froehlich and Meeting Teachers’ Needs

Flipboard EDU Podcast

It's no secret that teachers are leaving education in droves. So much so that it's causing drastic shifts in the ways schools will need to operate this fall. Some large school districts have as many as one thousand teacher job openings and this issue is only getting worse as post-pandemic educators are facing low wages, rising benefits costs, extreme student discipline problems, and polarizing politics. This is a crisis that has surpassed the traditional definition of a shortage. I have talked with several thought leaders about this issue, including Mandy Froehlich, who I met during one of Nicole Biscotti’s Coffee Conversations on Zoom.Mandy Froehlich is a former elementary teacher, technology integration specialist, and director of innovation and technology for a number of schools in Wisconsin. She is currently an educational consultant, an adjunct professor at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, and the chief operating officer of EduMatch Publishing. Mandy has written four books: The Fire Within, Reignite the Flames, Divergent EDU, and the Educators Matchbook.In this episode, we speak to Mandy about meeting teachers’ basic needs, mental health support for educators, and recommendations for how leadership can support current workloads in education.Podcast Planner for Teachers and StudentsFlipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website Support the showPodcast Planner for Teachers and StudentsFlipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website Connect with me:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/coachjeffery/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/FlipboardEDUPodcastYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/Coachjeezy/Twitter: https://twitter.com/CoachJefferyLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/coachjeffery/Website: https://coachjeffery.flipedupodcast.com/

Mandy Froehlich (@froehlichm) - Don't Just Set Goals; Make Plans

The Dr. Will Show Podcast

Mandy Froelich spends much of her time consulting with school districts and post-secondary institutions in the effective use of technology to support great teaching, mental health support for educators, and how to create organizational change in education. Her first book, The Fire Within: Lessons from defeat that have ignited a passion for learning, discusses mental health awareness for teachers. Her second book, Divergent EDU, is based on an organizational structure she developed to support teachers in innovative and divergent thinking. Her third book, based on educator engagement and mental health, is titled Reignite the Flames which has a companion guide/workbook titled The Educator’s Matchbook.​Mandy is passionate about learning and her profession in general, but her two favorite components of her position are being able to provide professional learning opportunities and present/keynote conferences. She believes that by providing these opportunities to teachers, she is in turn able to reach many more students and ultimately affect their learning experiences. Also, on a personal side note, Mandy was insanely afraid of public speaking throughout her life until she reached college. At that time she took multiple public speaking courses to try to get over her fear of speaking in front of people to the point where it was silly for her not to declare it as her minor because she had so many credits. The ability to get up in front of adults (which is not the same as getting up in front of kids) and not bawl like a baby is one of Mandy’s accomplishments that she’s most proud of. Just another reason she likes providing professional learning opportunities, presenting, and keynoting.At home you’ll usually find her talking to her family or spending copious amounts of time telling her dog she’s pretty. Mandy loves coffee and has a hard time being friends with people who don’t. Mostly, she has devoted her life to finding what makes her happy…and seeing others happy fills her cup.
