Not All Superheroes Wear Capes

Teacher appreciation week brings about many memories for all of us. For me, school was work. My grades came from any work I decided to put into it, and along the way I always seemed to find “excuses” not to put in that work. Of course, following that decision were results that were not exactly pleasing to my parents. Many find a great joy in learning, in reading, in excelling at academic work. At the association, I am surrounded by many who enjoy learning. I always found school and the work surrounding it, to be a challenge. Not that...

What’s the Purpose of Your Employee Benefits Enrollment?

In this “new normal” we find ourselves in both personally and professionally, I thought the best article may be one of truth and logic. Now that sounds ironic, huh?

Ever take a job you really didn’t expect to ever have?

I often wondered, since I am in sales, and I have an over-enjoyment of talking - why am I not in the blogosphere? Well, you have your wish - or mine, to be determined I suppose. Within my maiden voyage, why not date myself? I graduated college in 1994. To be honest, I was never much of a lover of school. My parents thought it was important for all of us kids to have our best...

KASB Risk Management Group: Insurance with a Purpose

What if your school district could protect itself against risk AND give back to public education? KASB’s Risk Management Group products offer precisely that opportunity. “We like to call our work ‘insurance with a purpose,’” says Risk Management Group Director Rod Spangler. “Every dollar districts spend on our products goes back out to support student success. No one in this market is in service to education like we are.” KASB for decades has offered districts workers’ compensation, property casualty and student accident insurance. With the recent addition of Employee Benefit Solutions, Spangler says the organization has the capacity to cover buildings,...
