Welcome to the Counter Narrative Podcast, a show designed to change the way we talk, and think, about education. By sharing stories of successes and triumphs, we aim to challenge the dominant narrative that often negatively portrays our disenfranchised populations.
I’m your host, Charles Williams. An urban educator for more than 15 years, a current school principal in Chicago, an educational consultant, an equity advocate, and the co-host of Inside The Principal’s Office.

In this episode, I chat with Chuck Moss. He has over 25 years in education having served as a teacher and administrator at the elementary middle, and high school levels.
Chuck currently serves as the Director of innovation and development for Dinwiddie County Schools where he works with staff to bring new ideas to the classroom and create meaningful learning experiences for students of all ages.
His why is simple: “Bring out the best in people so they can bring out the best in others.”
During our conversation, Chuck talks about leading from a place of experience. In fact, he returned to the classroom so that he could learn about the technology that he now directs in his district. We also dive into a pivotal question for educators, am I creating learning. Are we developing the systems, processes, and approaches, regardless of the environment (meaning remote or in-person), that fosters learning? Or are we making excuses for operating in uncomfortable situations? Challenging questions for challenging times.
