New voices - Rick Scheibner

Miguel challenged us to find new voices.

Between now and February 17 I am profiling eight nine bloggers that I've found informative and intriguing.


Today's new voice: Rick Scheibner, RickScheibner.net

Rick is a counselor in the Hermiston School District in Oregon. He's also working on his school administrator license at Lewis & Clark. Rick is using his blog to reflect on the topics they're covering in his coursework and I like reading his perspectives as someone who's new to the world of school administration. Here are

a few posts to get you started:

  • Leadership meme
  • ELL: What I know, what I don't know, and a few big picture items
  • Previous new voices: Kelly Christopherson, Scott Elias, Jim Forde, Brian Saxton, Chris Hitch, Scott Schwister

    Happy reading!

    P.S. Dean is profiling some new voices too. Excellent!
