Ep. 87: Andrea, Access, Equity, And Enchiladas

In this episode, I connect with Andrea Aguirre to chat about the equity and access issues going on with the minority communities. While discussing, Andrea walks us through how to make authentic Mexican Enchiladas, not the Tex-Mex stuff. It’s a great conversation and one that needs to be had amongst those beyond our pay grade. So try not to salivate or get hungry during this episode. Don’t forget to leave a review and thank you for listening. Buen provecho!

Ep 128: Slack For Extracurricular Communication With Jarrett Lipman EdTech Bites Podcast

In this episode, I chat with Slack for extracurricular communication between directors, coaches, parents, and students with Jarrett Lipman. Jarrett is the band director for the Claudia Taylor Johnson High School in San Antonio, Texas and uses Slack as the main channel for communicating with his band members and parents. We actually recorded this episode while eating pizza at my house. He also gives us some insight on what it’s like to be a band director of such a high caliber band program.  Connect With Gabriel Carrillo EdTech Bites Website: https://edtechbites.com EdTech Bites Twitter: https://twitter.com/edtechbites EdTech Bites Instagram: https://instagram.com/edtechbites EdTech Bites Facebook Page: https://facebook.com/edtechbites EdTech Bites YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQCZcyW4BkCFQ5P2BLK61xg About Jarrett Lipman Since Claudia Taylor “Lady Bird” Johnson High School (CTJ) opened its doors in 2008, Jarrett Lipman, Director of Bands, has established a tradition of excellence both on the concert stage and on the marching field.  Under Jarrett’s leadership, the CTJ Wind ensemble is a consistent Texas State Honor Band Finalist and performed at the 2019 Mid-West Clinic.
