Episode 36 - Being a reluctant educator with Josh Wilson

This podcast is available in iTunes, Google, Spotify, and many other pod catchers. Subscribe with this URL: 

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.

One thing we all have in common is that we’ve been to school. Everyone has an educational story to share.
