S8 Episode 14: Service and Leadership with Dr. Nancy Pratt
It’s the week of Veterans Day, and 3Ps in a Pod hosts Angelia and Danielle are talking with Dr. Nancy Pratt about her military experience and how that has carried into her education career.
Pratt is currently the Director of Instruction and Innovation at Cave Creek Unified School District. But before realizing her interest in teaching, Pratt was a young woman in a Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) military briefing class at Arizona State University, realizing she had something special to offer.
Pratt became a transportation officer stationed at Fort Lewis near Tacoma, Washington. She shares in this episode about the direction she received from her experiences in the military, how her military experience has shaped her education career, and the direct connections between training military officers and working in education with both students and adult learners.
In this episode, 3Ps host Danielle also shares a bit about her experience being the child of a career service member and then teaching in an accommodation district, a public school for military-connected kids.
Enjoy this episode on the intersections of military service and educational leadership in this week’s 3Ps in a Pod.
