Episode Info: Before all non-essential workers were pushed to slow down and isolate, Deidre had already taken a big step away from the frenetic work life of a K-12 school administrator. In this episode we talk about her career choice and about what she is learning from staying home during the pandemic. To listen to my first conversation with Deidre Crawley, check out Episode 16 in your feed or on our site here: [music] 00:06 Speaker 1: This is Do Good, Be Good. The show about helpful people and the challenges they face in trying to do good. Your host is Sharon Tewksbury-Bloom, a career do-gooder who also loves craft beer and a good hard tackle in rugby. Sharon speaks to everyday people about why they do good and what it means to be good. 00:26 Sharon Tewksbury-Bloom: Welcome back. This is your host, Sharon Tewksbury-Bloom, and I’m back with another update episode. Today’s guest is Deidre Crawley. We interviewed her… [chuckle] By we, I mean I interviewed her during season two of Do Good, Be Good when I was talking about AmeriCorps Programs. Deidre and I met as she was the Director of AmeriCorps Programs when I joined AmeriCorps back, all the way back, in 2007 so we’ve known each other quite a long time. 00:55 ST: Since then, I got the chance to work for her and we’ve also remained friends. The last time I spoke to Deidre she was working as the dean at the Flagstaff Arts and Leadership Academy. And during this episode, we’ll talk about the big transition she has made in her career and in her life since then. Before getting into the episode, I just wanna check in briefly. We recorded this episode in mid-April 2020 while both of us were isolating at home during the stay-at-home order for the coronavirus pandemic crisis. This was my first interview that I did in this format where we were interviewing from home. So I apologize and I hope that you will understand the audio quality on Deidre’s side of the conversation where she didn’t have an actual microphone, is not good [chuckle] and I’m so sorry about that. 01:48 ST: I think that her message is important and I hope that you’ll listen in. If it is difficult for you to hear, if you have any trouble dealing with the audio quality, there will be a transcript of today’s episode which is available at our website, That’s So if you have any trouble listening, just go and read the transcript. I think that it’s really worth taking the time to hear what Deidre has to say. I hope that this episode finds you well and safe. Thank you so much. Let’s get into my conversation with Deidre Crawley. 02:32 ST: How are you? [laughter] 02:35 Deidre Crawley: I’m doing well, thank you. Thank you for asking. I’m getting used to a new… And I know they keep saying a new normal but I don’t think it’s normal, it’s just new. But doing good, healthy. I am not in a situation wh...
