Dr. Craig Boykin's Books
In this podcast episode of the principal entrepreneur we get the honor of talking with nationally recognized keynote speaker and author Dr. Craig Boykin. His keynote GED to Phd is an inspirational talk focusing on his journey from drop out to doctorate. And more importantly the strategies educators can use to overcome and reach at risk youth. Dr. Boykin is the author of My Life Your Inspiration, College Success 2.0, and Right Motives Wrong Methods: Teaching with Poverty in Mind.
In this short 25 minute conversation Dr. Boykin touches on his rough child hood and his journey from drop out to doctorate. During the conversation he also offers advice to educators on working with "at risk youth" and the inspiration for his book Right Motives Wrong Methods that has even more strategies than we had time to get into.
He also suggests a couple of books that had a strong impact on him; anything by Principal Kafele and Lead Like Jesus by Ken Blanchard and Phil Hodges
