ADHD Essentials

Not a Troublemaker, Just Having Trouble. with Gerry Goyette, Middle School Principal

April 19, 2019

One of my favorite things about doing this podcast is the way it has helped me reconnect with people.  Today’s episode is an excellent example of that.  I recently invited my old principal, Gerry. Goyette, to come on the show to talk ADHD from the administrative side of school, and he was nice enough to agree.  It was an absolute pleasure to talk ADHD and education with him. He’s just as smart as I remembered. 

 In today’s episode, we get an inside look at a principal’s approach to leading a school through the lens of ADHD.  We discuss the Intersection of Anxiety and Standardized Testing, the ebb and flow of stress in the school year for ADHD kids, the importance of consistency,  and the value of trust.
