Navarro Cheer Coach, @MonicaAldama, is the Greatest Leader of our Time!

If you haven’t watched the series, Cheer, on Netflix yet, you must! It’s great. Honestly, I wasn’t thrilled to watch a series about cheerleading. Just not something I thought I would be interested in, but it’s so much more than a show about cheerleading. It’s about getting to great performance, about inclusion, about leadership, and […]
