What’s in Store for Cabell County Schools w/Ryan Saxe (Part 1)

What’s in Store for Cabell County Schools

Today’s episode features part one of my conversation with Cabell County Schools Superintendent Ryan Saxe (Twitter). We talk about his return to West Virginia after a few years in Florida working for Manatee County Schools, the great things he has seen so far in Cabell County as he has finished up his first year on the job, and the restructuring plan that has been implemented under his leadership. You can hear part two the conversation with Ryan on Season 2, Episode 9 of the show.

A Great Educational Podcast

The House of #EdTech

The House of #EdTech is hosted by Chris Nesi (website). The podcast explores how technology is changing the way teachers teach and the impact it is having in education. Some of the objectives of the show are to discuss technology that is changing our classroom and schools and sharing technology that you can hear about today and implement into your classroom tomorrow. Chris does this by speaking with teachers, creators, and leaders to see how technology is impacting them and their classrooms and schools. Head over to his website to check out the show and subscribe in the podcatcher of your choice.

Upcoming Events and Announcements


Every Thursday at 9PM on Twitter – hosted by, friend of the show, Phil Strunk (@mrpstrunk). Phil works to get the questions posted ahead of time to help participants prepare for each session. 


The #WVEdChat is currently sitting in hiatus for the summer. If anything changes on that front I’ll be sure to announce it through my Twitter account (@RGBlack316).

The first session for the new school year is currently scheduled for September 4, 2018. The topic for the evening will be our annual #Back2School chat. Join us as I, Randall Black, moderate the chat for the evening.
