March 21st, 2019

This episode brings together former teacher Maire Cervenak and education reporter Janet French. Both have a distinct experience to share when it comes to how stories about teachers are told in the media. Our conversation is a frank and open discussion on how stories are made, which ones get to be told, and how some of those stories impact their subjects.

Conversation 87 - Sara Candela - Podtalk

March 14th, 2019

Sara Candela recently jumped coast lines as part of what can only be described as a big change. A veteran of classroom teaching for 14 years, she decided to leave that behind, cross the country, and pursue podcasting full time. Her gamble paid off and she is now a podcast producer working in California. But her passion for students and teaching hasn't left her. As we explore her journey, we come back around to the importance of giving a voice to students and the opportunities that podcasting can provide for real learning and reflection.

Check-in 38 - Podcasting for PD (LIVE!)

March 4th, 2019

In our first ever live podcast, I get together with Joe, Jeremy, and Shaun - plus our audience - and we talk podcasting for PD. As professionals, we often question the value of traditional professional development settings because their value is often so limited. We open the door to the possibility that maybe personal PD just might be a better solution. As we dive in, we try to disentangle the benefits from the drawbacks and look for a way forward that might accommodate both traditional and non-traditional PD formats.

February 28th, 2019

From the moment we first begin chatting, it's clear that Rita is not a woman of half-measures. After 48 years of teaching, she is as passionate and motivated to do what's best for her students and for the education system as ever. Our conversation ranges from how to motivate students, to problems with education system, to how to effectively create culture change in a school.

Conversation 84 - Maire Cervenak - Two Sides

February 21st, 2019

It's easy to say that there are two sides to every story, but depending on what side you're on, the experience of this truth can be devastating. This week, I'm joined by Maire Cervenak who knows just how damaging a media story can be. Formerly a highly praised classroom teacher, Maire is now in a stage of "figuring it out" after having left the profession. In our conversation she relates her experience following a mistake at work that, vis-a-vis media attention, was spun into a story that proved incredibly damaging to her career and well-being. This episode is an honest look at the profession and role that the media play in shaping widely accepted narratives about it.

Bonus Episode 7 - Podcasting as PD

February 8th, 2019

This special episode of Ed is a recording of the session I recently did at the NCTCA teachers convention. It's a quick session all about how to use podcasting as a source of personal professional development, both from the listening and the creation side. This was recorded in front of a live audience and was the first part of a two-part session. The second half will be coming out as a check-in at the start of March.

Check-in 37 - Blinders On

February 1st, 2019

Well, its finally happened. This month marks the first solo flight for Ed. On my own, I reflect this month on the importance of personal challenge. We regularly encourage our kids to overcome obstacles and accept failure as part of the learning process, but how often do we engage in this same mindset? I talk about some recent challenges I've taken on, plus the need to remain focused on a single goal in order to achieve truly deep learning and that level of high polish that can only come with hard work and time.
