Living On The Edge of Chaos

Coffeechug Cafe Episode #1: Passion Driven Classroom

Episode Summary

This is not a pristine podcast, but it is real and raw. I don't have a theme song(anyone want to make one?) and the tools I have are quite simple: Audacity and my Mac mic. But the message I deliver is a strong one. A message about Passion Driven Classroom and this is one that has fueled my fire for several months now. I will be speaking on this topic at the WCGTC(World Council for the Gifted and Talented Conference) in August. I have been doing extensive research and also working on some key ideas. As I continue to work the outline of my speech I wanted to do a practice run speaking on passion as well as get started with my new Coffeechug Cafe Podcast series that I have been wanting to create. I figured I could kill two birds with one stone. I would greatly appreciate it if you would give my podcast a listen and give me feedback. I want to enhance this podcast as I go along. I also want feedback on the content. As I work through my presentation and you listen to this podcast I would love to know: 1. Did my passion come through? 2. Did you find the message and content helpful? 3. How was my delivery? 4. What else does the message need? I am still looking for more quality content and real life examples of passion based classrooms. My goal is to get teachers reflecting about their passions for being a teacher and ensuring they share that in the classroom. When that happens learning can be amazing. Thank you for listening and giving me any feedback that you think will make me better as a speaker, podcaster, and as well as the message.
