Our newest episode features a conversation with Lindsey Nelson, Literacy Coordinator at the Tennessee State Department of Education. Lindsey has served as a MNPS classroom teacher, instructional coach, and the Regional Manager of Literacy for a charter school network. Lindsey and I met while working at a local university and we connected over the fact that we both have young children.

In this episode, Lindsey gives amazing advice for parents deciding where to send their children to school. Lindsey discusses her family’s decision making process and ways that anyone can adapt the lessons she’s learned to make the best decision possible concerning their child. We also discuss literacy and how to make sense of TN Ready scores.
