In this episode, he explains his dissertation research about Experienced New Teachers, who are they, and what do they need? At a time when teacher retention is of vital importance, Josh’s work is timely and vital. Supporting new teachers has always been a priority for schools and school systems, especially as we know that two-thirds of new teachers leave the profession within the first five years of their career. Josh’s focus on experienced folks who are in a new environment is worth engaging with if we want to address the needs of some of our veterans in the profession too. This is something that the Edjacent collaborative are concerned about, and I’m pleased to say that Josh is going to be working with us on just this issue in the future. I’m looking forward to hearing more about his work in the future. This podcast is a proud member of Edjacent.

This podcast is available in iTunes, Google, Spotify, and many other pod catchers. Subscribe with this URL: https://feed.podbean.com/teatimeteaching/feed.xml  Dr. Josh Wilson is a high school social studies teacher, a recent PhD graduate, and, like me, a reluctant entrant into the teaching profession. His story is well worth a listen. Well, we are back for the new year.  The plan is to continue to share in-depth teacher stories. Continue to position our understanding of where we are in a historical context, and in between maybe have some fun. The plan is to release episodes every couple of weeks until the summer break, then resume in the fall. I don’t know about you, but I’ve found that since the beginning of the pandemic, my tolerance for long podcasts has waned. I have a decreasing bandwidth for lengthy podcasts, and as a result, I’ve been trying to make each of ours shorter. So, my commitment to you, dear listener, is to make sure that my content does not go beyond 30 minutes. Now I can’t account for commercials and the stuff that our hosts and providers share, but I can at least do that for you. This podcast is a proud member of Edjacent.

It’s the stories of teachers, students, and school communities that matter most in education. So, to make them visible, we need your help. Pease leave positive reviews wherever you are able. If you are an iTunes or Spotify subscriber, leaving a good review can really help our visibility.  Also, please don’t keep this podcast to yourself.

In today’s episode, we share the final part of my conversation with Edjacent designer Jared Fritzinger. We’ve been talking about Capstone projects, and the ecobus in particular. Today we will conclude by investigating the idea of educators as artists. I always enjoy chatting with Jared, and we talk about so many things in our time together. If you haven’t listened to the previous parts of the interview, I suggest you go back and listen to Episodes 29 to 31. They will give you context as to where today’s conversation is coming from. If you want to contact Jared directly you can get in touch via twitter @jaredfritzinger or email him at jared@edjacent.org.

Last time we talked about his student’s capstone project and how they conceptualized, then refitted and ecobus to help teach other schools about sustainability. If you haven’t’ listened to episode 31 yet, I suggest that you do. It’s a fascinating conversation. Today, though, we talk about how the ecobus project developed through the pandemic and how that and other capstone projects align to the true purpose of education. We also touch upon how the act of breaking boundaries is a key part of the good work that educators should do.

Jared was on our pub talk episode (way back in episode 14) so you’ve met him before. I suppose this now makes him a “Friend of the pod” as they say in the podcasting world. Whenever I get a chance to talk with Jared, we always talk for hours about so many things. In our conversation shared over the next few episodes we talk about capstone projects, sustainability, using cooking oil as fuel, punk rock, independent record labels, and why educators should be treated as artists. But for today’s episode we get to know Jared a little better as he shares his teacher story and introduces us to the eighth-grade capstone experience.   You can contact Jared on Twitter @jaredfritzinger If you would like to contribute to the pod in any way, if you have a story to share, long, short, tragic, or comic, if you have comments to make about the podcast, or just want to say “hi”, you can send an email to TeachersTeaTimePod@gmail.com or alternatively you can send emails to me directly using mark@edjacent.org I love to read what you have to say.
