On this week's episode we have our very first guest! Colleague, science teacher, former administrator, and 20+ year vet of the teaching profession, Mark joins us to give his take on dress code from the male teacher perspective. We also chat about grade inflation and get some sage advice on when to just let things go (or when to put on a good poker face and fake it!).
On this week's episode, we discover the new (to us) and certainly unscrupulous industry of paying someone else to take your online college class and we talk about what motivates our students. All that plus our plug for three interactive resources that are sure to delight English students and visual learners alike.
On this week's episode, we discuss our stance on dress codes (and whether or not they are implicitly sexist) and our reactions to a NYC principal who forced her staff to throw out their teacher desks. Plus, our comments on a new announcement from The White House on testing frequency. #literallythanksObama
On this week's episode, we try to get through the October slump (you're not the only one!) by writing letters of recommendation for all those wonderful former students that make us love our jobs. Along that line, we discuss tips for getting through the college application season and the value of teaching mindfulness to our students.
