It was a big delight to speak with History teacher Erin Brandvold this week. Erin is an excellent teacher, teacher-leader, instructional coach, and fitness guru.
We chatted about “Fear and Loathing in Homer and Rockville,” a fascinating episode of This American Life that I highlighted in last Thursday’s issue of the newsletter. It’s a story of a man in a small town in Alaska who researches his stance about immigration for an upcoming vote on a local measure.
I’ve decided that Erin should have her own podcast — that is, after she keeps teaching her students like the star she is, and after she completes half marathons and five-minute planks as part of Teacher Beasts.
Please take a listen and enjoy. Also, if you like the podcast, please feel free to subscribe!
Thank you, and see you next Sunday night for the next episode of the podcast!
