Amanda and Marie met in 2019 as presenters at a conference, and the two veteran, creative, and kick-butt teachers became fast friends. These women are lit up by breaking the mold in the classroom and bravely pursuing the most dynamic, effective, and progressive teaching techniques. But both women understand that bravely pursuing the best teaching practices isn’t always easy. It takes confidence, community, and a sense of humor.
And that is exactly why they began their new podcast, Brave New Teaching. So much about teaching is growing through exploration, listening to your intuition, and being willing to try, fail, and try again. In today’s episode, Amanda and Marie are open and honest about their experiences being brave in their classrooms, and they offer practical advice on how to get started in your own.
This episode will leave you itching to get started on that unit you’ve been dreaming up, or motivated to have that important curriculum conversation with your department head. If you need a little empowerment, tune in.
