In our conversation, Alicia shares candidly about the challenge of confronting professional insecurities in the presence of peers who seem to have it altogether. She explains the why, what, and how of her incredible book review habit, and previews her own upcoming book, Educational Eye Exam. She points to the personal passions and productivity habits that work for her, and shouts out the voices and resources that shape her thinking and inspire her practice today. Finally, we end the conversation with a good laugh about what The Office would look like in a school context!
