We jump right into it in this episode. There is so much to cover as we welcome Steve Sugg back to the district. Recently retired, Steve was the Superintendent of Dayton Schools from July 2020 to June 2023. He provided stability during a major school disruption (pandemic/ distance learning) and guided us during a multi-million dollar Facilities and Improvements Bond. There was no shortage of stress. Yet, those weren't the things that made him lose sleep at night. Learn how retirement is treating Steve, and why his heart remains with the Dayton Community.
Come meet long-time resident, parent, and pre-school teacher, Tiffany Ashley. We discuss together the phrase 'daycare desert' and how that pushed Tiffany to develop her program from the early days of a cooperative to being partnered with the school. We also spend a bit of time discussing siblings and the debate of "Nature v.s. Nurture". Tiffany's positivity shines through during this discussion. To learn more about this program, contact the school or follow up on our website.
Cher, Pele, Shaq, ... Mitch. Today we interviewed Dayton's single name celebrity, Mitch Coleman. Referred to mostly by his first name, Mitch has been teaching Agriculture and leading our nationally recognized FFA program since 1990. Learn what drives him to success and how he's changed his perspective over the course of his long, celebrated career. It's easy to see why so many Dayton families have gone through Mitch's classes over the years. His passion and work ethic are on full display in this episode.
