Join us on the first and Third wednesday of each month for new episodes.
In our March 16th episode, Kisha Reid is in conversation with Chazz Lewis, aka “Mr. Chazz”, a former Montessori preschool teacher turned educational specialist with a fast-growing presence on social media. Mr. Chazz applies his brand of charisma, humor and insight to important topics in both education and parenting. He’s a mentor and motivational speaker who also hosts the podcast, Mr. Chazz’s Leadership, Parenting, and Teaching. Together they will be discussing healing generational trauma in parents and educators with the goal of stopping the cycle. He uses his work as an educational specialist to guide listeners through tools and exercises to begin to do the work of healing their own trauma.
His mission is to help adults truly See, Guide and Trust children. He is pushing the needle a little closer toward world peace. He wants to empower adults to truly see children, more effectively guide them, and trust that children are doing the best they can with the skills they have in the moment. He goes by, “Mr. Chazz” and he even has a song to prove it. He has been a teacher of teachers and parents for a decade. He has worked with many schools, thousands of teachers and thousands of children as an Educational Specialist. He earned his Master’s in Executive Leadership at American University.
The #1 lesson Mr. Chazz has learned – “we need to adapt the way we teach to the way children learn instead of expecting them to adapt to the way we teach”.
Our 2021 blog on policy priorities where Dr. Jones discusses many policy topics, one of which is the need for trauma-informed early childhood programs for all children.
