We are facing a crisis in education leadership. Even before COVID, nearly half of new principals leave their schools after three years, and nearly 20 percent leave every year. We all know leadership makes or breaks the school, and in turn, has an impact on future generations of the community. Education Leaders’ Organization (ELO) is here to provide the support needed to help school leaders thrive.
With me in this episode to talk about this is Co-Founder and President of Kay-Twelve Kevin Stoller. Kevin Stoller is Co-Founder and President of Kay-Twelve, a leading national distributor of educational furniture. Kay-Twelve helps schools create better learning environments. Working with hundreds of schools around the country, Kevin is passionate about helping educators think outside of the box to focus on individual student needs. Kevin earned a Master’s in Business Administration from The Ohio State University and a Bachelor’s degree from Miami University.
Kevin is active in the entrepreneurial community, hosts several podcasts, leads workshops to help educators improve the learning environment and is the author of Creating Better Learning Environments. With many family members in the education community, he has sought ways to incorporate the entrepreneurial mindset into the school community. Kevin hosts a podcast, Better Learning, that connects a wide variety of change makers in the education community.
Many of the lessons learned from successful – and failing education initiatives – can be applied to other environments. Kay-Twelve has helped improve learning environments for over 205,000 students and was recently named to the Inc 5000 list for fasting growing companies in America. On a personal note, Kevin spends as much time as possible with his wife, Darci, and their 3 children, Grant, Maggie & Tessa. For more, visit ed-leaders.org
