Once in a while I get asked to share my thoughts with other educators via their podcasts. I love doing this because it always forces me to think about what it is I am doing and also whether or not I am staying true to my educational philosophy. When Sam Rangel, whose blog I love, asked me to be his first guest on his new podcast “The Amazing Teacher” I didn’t know if I would be a good candidate. After all, i don’t walk around thinking I am amazing. But what i did know that if I could even help one person change the way they teach then it would completely be worth my time, and besides, I would get to discuss education with Sam which was a bonus.
