237. The Intersection of Leadership and Special Education: Featuring Dr. Amy Mathews-Perez
In this week’s episode, Dr. Amy Mathews-Perez shares how, as a Principal, she felt successful but unfulfilled. Join us as we talk about being authentic in our desires and mission, while not conforming to other people’s assumptions and expectations.
In this episode, we discuss:
- Supporting special education as a leader
- Teaching those we serve how to collaborate
- And her upcoming projects!
About Dr. Amy Mathews-Perez:
Texas-born & raised, I am currently in my 30th year of public education where I have served as a General Ed. Teacher, an SLP, a Diagnostician, a SPED Supervisor, Assistant Principal, Principal and a Director of Special Programs. My passions are communication, laughter and using those things to inspire & empower others. As a learner, I consider myself an “Experience Expert.” Life is short but our influence is never ending, so I seek joy and create smiles through connecting, sharing, and highlighting the best in others.

As a passionate coffee drinker, I am always looking for the best cup of premium coffee. Once Leslie and I tasted Papa Rob’s Coffee, we instantly fell in love with the flavor of the Espresso Special Blend. Papa Rob’s Coffee is the only coffee we drink and I’m proud to have them as the exclusive sponsor of the podcast!
Papa Rob’s Roasting Company was started to pass on the love for premium coffee that is as fresh as it is delicious! Rob sources only the finest green coffee beans from around the world and then roasts them to perfection upon order in small batches, so that they will always be at their peak flavor and freshness. One taste and you will experience the difference!
