It's tough to teach when your students aren't listening. That's why great classroom management is key to any successful classroom. Let’s discuss.
Like other first days in your life, your first day as a teacher in your own school classroom will have you feeling excited and anxious in equal measures. Even experienced teachers feel anxious about facing new students at the beginning of each school year. Just take a deep breath and relax. In this episode we will discuss Back to School Tips.
A recent Gallup poll shows that almost half of the teachers in the U.S. say they are actively looking for a different job now or watching for opportunities. That’s not only heartbreaking for the professionals involved, it’s bad news for the stability of the industry. High teacher turnover impacts student performance and costs U.S. schools $7.3 billion in losses every year.
On this episode we discussion the issues that are driving so many educators away?
The students are now gone. Here’s how to make the most of Summer Break.
Are you thinking about becoming a teacher? On this episode we discuss getting your first job in education or changing jobs in education.
Put simply, being a teacher is stressful. From managing students’ emotional and academic success, to creating lesson plans and grading papers, teachers have an immense weekly workload to handle. And with so many duties and so many students to care for, teachers often neglect their own self-care and wellness. Let’s discuss some self-care techniques…
Finally! It’s summer—that long-awaited time to enjoy some extra rest and recreation. But did you know too much kicking back can be harmful to your student’s learning?
Studies show that students can lose up to two months of math and literacy skills over the summer. Although summer learning loss—also known as the summer slide—is a real problem, it doesn’t have to slow down your child at the start of a new school year. Let’s discuss some solutions.

Welcome to the Inspiring Educators Podcast. On this episode we have a Special Guest Mr. Carl Oliver as we discuss the NCTM 2019 Ignite Presentations. Ignites are five-minute talks, using twenty slides that auto-advance every fifteen seconds.
Teaching is a demanding and highly complex activity that sometimes leaves us feeling inadequate and filled with self-doubt. We will work to understand what it takes to strengthen and sustain ourselves as educators by answering one question: How do we recognize our own greatness?
New evidence shows the massive gap in test scores between students from the wealthiest and poorest families hasn’t budged in fifty years. It’s time to stop attacking the problem with reform strategies that haven’t worked.
According to nonprofit EdBuild, Nonwhite school districts get $23 Billion less than white districts despite serving the same number of students.
Recent U.S. education reform has focused on defining and raising the subject-matter standards students are expected to meet. In order to get their students up to snuff, schools are extending the school day and putting more and more emphasis on academic learning, which can squeeze out a beloved part of the traditional school day–recess.
If you were to ask even a relatively small group of teachers, administrators, students, parents, community members, business leaders, and policymakers to address the question of purpose, how difficult do you think it would be to reach a consensus?
The Common Core concentrates on a clear set of math skills and concepts. Students will learn concepts in a more organized way both during the school year and across grades. The standards encourage students to solve real-world problems.
Talk less and involve with students more. The more you make your class interactive and the more that you utilize technology, the more your students will enjoy what they are learning.
How do you keep your class interesting?
If you’re a teacher, then these phrases will definitely sound familiar. Let’s discuss some of the most common questions, statements, and excuses that teachers hear on a daily basis.
For those considering a career in teaching, there are a number of potential motivators. Teaching can be a challenging profession, but there are numerous benefits to this career. Some feel a calling to impact the lives of students, while others are drawn to teaching for the ability to make a difference in the education system at large. So why teach?
Most people believe that students do better in well-funded schools and that public education should provide a level playing field for all children. Nearly half of the funding for public schools in the United States, however, is provided through local taxes, generating large differences in funding between wealthy and impoverished communities (National Center for Education Statistics, 2000a). Efforts to reduce these disparities have provoked controversy and resistance.
Educator’s need to have fun. On this week’s episode we focus on teachers having fun outside of work.
Due to the recognition that standardized tests can play a unique role in understanding student learning outcomes, schools have introduced more such tests in recent years. Although the goal of these additional assessments is to help students, it has sometimes had the unintended outcome of creating student fatigue, practice effects, and false positives in test results. Although some tests will always be needed in schools, too many tests can create problems.
