It's no secret that teachers are leaving education in droves. So much so that it's causing drastic shifts in the ways schools will need to operate this fall. Some large school districts have as many as one thousand teacher job openings and this issue is only getting worse as post-pandemic educators are facing low wages, rising benefits costs, extreme student discipline problems, and polarizing politics. This is a crisis that has surpassed the traditional definition of a shortage. I have talked with several thought leaders about this issue, including Mandy Froehlich, who I met during one of Nicole Biscotti’s Coffee Conversations on Zoom.Mandy Froehlich is a former elementary teacher, technology integration specialist, and director of innovation and technology for a number of schools in Wisconsin. She is currently an educational consultant, an adjunct professor at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, and the chief operating officer of EduMatch Publishing. Mandy has written four books: The Fire Within, Reignite the Flames, Divergent EDU, and the Educators Matchbook.In this episode, we speak to Mandy about meeting teachers’ basic needs, mental health support for educators, and recommendations for how leadership can support current workloads in education.Podcast Planner for Teachers and StudentsFlipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website 411 Immunitea Our focus is solely on creating natural products that leave you feeling happy and healthy. Support the show
Bia Valle is not a  traditional classroom teacher by trade but her classroom on Clubhouse is one of the most innovative ideas I have seen on that platform. While most people use Clubhouse to try to sell or market themselves, Bia Valle has been using it to teach emerging bilinguals to practice their English. People from around the world tune into Clubhouse and practice speaking and listening skills and then curate Flipboard magazines.Her rooms are trendy in countries that are hungry to practice English as a second language exercising speaking and listening skills. Bia is however an avid Flipboard user like myself and she requires her students to create, curate and share Flipboard magazines. What better way to collaborate with adults than to use Flipboard’s curation tools? She masterfully conducts her classroom, even empowering several of her students to host the Clubhouse room while she moderates.Bia then allows students to collaborate on group magazines, sharing important aspects of their own cultures as they learn English. Bia manages her community with themes and other events as students gain cross-cultural awareness while learning. It's an amazing event to witness and be a part of.In this episode, we discuss Bia’s passion for Flipboard, how she uses it as a learning management system with various students, and her class on Clubhouse.Podcast Planner for Teachers and StudentsFlipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website 411 Immunitea Our focus is solely on creating natural products that leave you feeling happy and healthy. Support the show
Teacher burnout is a real and growing problem in K-12 education. Years of budget cuts and mounting pressure to improve test scores have taken their toll on teachers, leading to increased levels of stress and feeling burned out. According to a recent study by National Education Association (NEA), nearly 60% of K-12 teachers are experiencing symptoms of burnout, including fatigue, cynicism, and a loss of enthusiasm for teaching.A good friend of the show Jim Thompson, former national distinguished principal and New York State Elementary Principal of the Year for the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) says we need to “stop, drop, and roll.” Much like the fire safety technique students learn, educators in the post-COVID-19 era need to stop doing things that are unproductive, drop some things that are not growing students, and roll with positivity and support from leaders and colleagues.In this episode, we explore how Jim’s stop, drop, and roll approach can help us to focus on what is important and help combat teacher burnout. We discuss ways to rethink the approach to traditional education, which is currently not conducive to teacher professional development.Podcast Planner for Teachers and StudentsFlipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website 411 Immunitea Our focus is solely on creating natural products that leave you feeling happy and healthy. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/FlipEDU?fan_landing=true)
Recently a new buzzword has surfaced in education stemming from the popularity of the 1619 Project, which its creators intended as a curriculum supplement for educators to use in the classroom. Initially met with praise, the 1619 Project has become divisive as it looks into the structures that separated enslaved African Americans from the free white Americans in this nation’s history.The buzzword is critical race theory and its very mention has many communities at odds with how the American education system teaches students about the darker moments of American History. Opponents of the 1619 Project have been vocal about its use in K-12 curricula. Some states, like Georgia and Idaho, have gone as far as to ban teachers from talking about critical race theory in classrooms from college to elementary school. The consequence for school districts that use the material in their curricula will have their funds cut as a result of recently passed bills in these states.Melvin Miller is a veteran and a high school teacher who grew up in the segregated south and served his country in the newly integrated military. Melvin provides a generational perspective that may be lost if America's true history is swept under the rug. During this interview, I couldn't help but think how so many people's experiences may become minimized if parts of our history are lumped in with critical race theory, and recounting our own experiences might simply be outlawed.In this episode, I will explore what critical race theory is, and talk about how it, along with states trying to redact history, maybe further divide America. I also examine why states are introducing legislation to prevent students from learning about institutionalized racism, Melvin's experiences in desegregation in the American military, and why Melvin Miller chose to become a history teacher.Podcast Planner for Teachers and StudentsFlipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website 411 Immunitea Our focus is solely on creating natural products that leave you feeling happy and healthy. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/FlipEDU?fan_landing=true)
The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke in the United States. A shared focus on cardiovascular health unites its more-than 40-million volunteers. My son Reese, a sixth-grader, is one of them. Imagine my surprise when he was chosen to be a 2022 Teen of Impact South West Region by the association. This honor was bestowed upon 20 teens who will compete with their teams to raise money and awareness of heart disease.Despite his young age, Reese is passionate about the association’s goals, and he and his team are doing everything they can to help promote heart health awareness.For an eight-week period, which began February 4 and will end on April 7, he and his fundraising team will compete for points to earn the national title of 2022 Teen of Impact for the American Heart Association. Joining the Teen of Impact initiative provides him with the opportunity to join fellow changemakers and use his voice to make a difference. Each week there is a different topic, such as movement, vaping and mental well-being. Through this, he is learning to teach, take charge and advocate for his health and that of others, and change policy. He is also gaining experience, skills, and connections in fields like healthcare, business, finance, leadership, nonprofit and social media that will set him apart in college and his future career.Reese and his team have created a fundraising page, and they are asking people to donate to the American Heart Association. They are also planning a variety of events to raise money and awareness by texting REESETOI to 71777. He is a remarkable young person who is already making a real difference in the world.In this episode, I speak with Reese about the American Heart Association and the Teens of Impact program. We also talk about why he chose to be a part of this program and what he hopes to accomplish.Podcast Planner for Teachers and StudentsFlipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website 411 Immunitea Our focus is solely on creating natural products that leave you feeling happy and healthy. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/FlipEDU?fan_landing=true)
Emergency room visits for suspected suicide attempts rose during the pandemic among adolescents. People of all ages are feeling the strain of social isolation and anxiety. For teenagers, these feelings can be compounded by bullying, which can lead to suicide. It is important for adults to be aware of the signs students display when contemplating suicide so they can get help.Some of the most common symptoms of suicidal ideation in teens include: talking about wanting to die or hurting oneself, expressing feelings of hopelessness, talking about being a burden to others, increased alcohol or drug abuse, withdrawing from friends and activities, abnormal mood swings, and giving away prized possessions. If you notice that a teen you know is exhibiting any of these signs, it is important to talk to them and get them help. But where would you turn?Registered nurse Brenda George is the co-founder of S.T.O.P. (Stop.Talk.Overcome.Pain), an initiative she started with her husband BL. They were inspired to create this because a friend's daughter attempted suicide. Brenda came to realize that the suicide rate in Brazoria County, Texas increased by 30%. In Texas, suicide is the second leading cause of death for people between the ages of 10 and 24. Brenda and BL also saw this trend occurring throughout the country.The Georges created an educator-approved campaign in collaboration with more than 35 local agencies in Brazoria County, hosting youth rallies and school events that focus on suicide prevention, anti-bullying, cyber-bullying awareness, and intervention.In this episode, we speak to Brenda about suicide prevention in youths, how to identify suicide risk factors, how bullying and cyberbullying contribute to suicide rates, and what her organization is doing to make a difference.Podcast Planner for Teachers and StudentsFlipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website 411 Immunitea Our focus is solely on creating natural products that leave you feeling happy and healthy. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/FlipEDU?fan_landing=true)
Burnout is a real thing in 2022. COVID-19 has taken its toll on our profession since its onset in 2019. The pandemic has shifted education in more ways than anyone can fathom. What started as an opportunity for educators to gain 21st-century skills has morphed into educators finding new professions. A new survey by the National Education Association says the COVID-19 pandemic is causing long-term problems with shortages and burnout in the teaching profession.Joel Garrett graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelor's in business administration and from Lamar University with a master's in educational administration. He has been a teacher, assistant principal, and career and technology education (CTE) director. Joel and I worked in the same school district, where he managed the career education program. Taking a page from his own book, Joel decided to switch careers and go after his current passion for financial management. This is one of those life choices that educators often don't think about until it’s either time to retire or when they start looking to change careers.In this conversation, we speak about changing careers during the pandemic and what educators can look for if they decide to switch professions. We also talk about how his role as a CTE director prepared him to be open to new opportunities outside education.Podcast Planner for Teachers and StudentsFlipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website 411 Immunitea Our focus is solely on creating natural products that leave you feeling happy and healthy. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/FlipEDU?fan_landing=true)
The Houston Area Alliance of Black School Educators (HAABSE) is a professional organization that is dedicated to ensuring all students have access to an excellent education. Through its initiatives and services, it provides the tools and strategies to help institutions, agencies, and communities create a more equitable learning environment for marginalized students. Through this collaboration, it strives for excellence in student achievement and creating better educational opportunities for all.I had the pleasure of interviewing She’Nee Young and Andrea Young, educators, and cousins, who are active members of HAABSE. She’Nee is the principal of an elementary campus in Fort Bend ISD and has a background in school psychology. Andrea has been a teacher for 14 years and is a recent graduate with a doctorate in educational leadership from the University of Houston, working in Katy ISD as an elementary teacher.During our discussion, they elaborated on what HAABSE means to them and their vision for the future of the organization. They both had a lot to say. She’Nee shared that the organization provides her with professional development opportunities and networking connections that she wouldn't have otherwise. Andrea added that through HAABSE she's been able to connect with other educators who share the same values and aspirations. She’Nee and Andrea are also the masterminds of a student empowerment group for youths from the Houston Area who learn leadership and networking skills. My own daughter is being mentored in this program and I can see its positive impact on her.Podcast Planner for Teachers and StudentsFlipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website 411 Immunitea Our focus is solely on creating natural products that leave you feeling happy and healthy. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/FlipEDU?fan_landing=true)
In a world of Google Classroom, digital textbooks, and educational apps, it can be hard to keep up with the latest technology trends in education. One tool that is worth looking into is Flipboard: a social magazine platform that allows users to collect articles, images, and videos from across the web into customizable magazines. In fact, after using it myself for years, it inspired me to create this podcast. Flipboard can be used in the classroom and the school administrator's office in a variety of ways. Here are just a few ideas: Creating class magazines on current events or topics of study, collaboratively creating magazines about school life or memories, as a reading resource for schools, for monitoring student interests and curating content specific to them, and lastly flipping through content for professional development.Victoria Tow is one of the senior product designers at Flipboard where she designs a lot of the app experience for both Android and iOS devices. She joined me on the show to talk about how and why Flipboard fits the needs of everyone. From building recipe books to curating classroom magazines, Flipboard is the Swiss Army Knife of applications for mobile devices. Victoria shares with us that her job is “really to solve user problems and create solutions to those problems through design.” That’s a powerful statement to me because that’s what I believe teachers do as well.In this episode, we speak to Victoria about working at Flipboard and designing the world’s best app. We also discuss her involvement with coding clubs and supporting educators early in her career and how that translates into what she does at Flipboard. She also gives us insight into how Flipboard’s latest updates lets you curate topics of interest.Podcast Planner for Teachers and StudentsFlipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website 411 Immunitea Our focus is solely on creating natural products that leave you feeling happy and healthy. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/FlipEDU?fan_landing=true)
I love talking with educators who are passionate about what they do for teachers and students. When I first saw a video from Sam Kary and Thom Gibson’s New EdTech Classroom, I was immediately hooked on how well they worked for educators, I started to follow them and collect their Instagram videos and TikToks, which share really cool websites for teachers and students. The New EdTech Classroom is my go-to resource for anything Google Education-related. Not only are Sam and Thom constantly updating their site, posting great resources and screencasts, they also have incredible videos that I collect in my Flipboard magazine.I had an exploratory interview with them about what got them started in EdTech, how they work together, and where their love of Google Education began. Our conversation went deep into how they work from home, the devices they use, and how their different organizational strategies work together. They provide great insight into how to engage students using technology.In episode 63 of the Flipboard EDU Podcast, Sam and Thom of the EdTech Classroom discuss how they use technology to enhance their teaching and to support others in their teaching.Podcast Planner for Teachers and StudentsFlipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website 411 Immunitea Our focus is solely on creating natural products that leave you feeling happy and healthy. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/FlipEDU?fan_landing=true)

Some of the most successful schools in COVID-19 are those that have made it a priority to meet all their students' needs. These schools recognize that, while they may not be able to help reach every student's potential, they can at least ensure that each and every student has the opportunity to succeed. This is traditionally achieved by providing teachers adequate resources; supporting students with disabilities, and ensuring that school policies align with state and federal law.La’Mond Hall is a three-time graduate of Prairie View A & M University. La'Mond earned a BA in social work, a Master’s degree in counseling, and a Master’s degree in special education. He also holds an educational diagnostician certification.In this episode, I speak to LaMond about being a self-contained behavioral teacher during COVID-19. We also discuss how children in special education now have to adjust to the second year of going to school with COVID-19 and how teachers can support their adjustment to the structure of a new year.Flipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/b9bb917bCopyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/6cd0b356Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/fae889b3https://uppbeat.io/t/sensho/double-takeLicense code: ZQLKLMU6EZ4EZUVMhttps://uppbeat.io/t/ra/take-actionLicense code: 9OMFXRUMARMT10IPMusic from Uppbeat (free for Creators!):https://uppbeat.io/t/pryces/music-isLicense code: WO9N7QDIM5PFELOF411 Immunitea Our focus is solely on creating natural products that leave you feeling happy and healthy. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/FlipEDU?fan_landing=true)
In the midst of this pandemic, many educators jumped at the chance to podcast, including yours truly. Podcasting became a way for teachers to connect with each other and share ideas for how best to educate their students in these unique times. There are many great educational podcasts available today, including Leader of Learning hosted by Dr. Dan Kreiness, Teachers of Fire hosted by Tim Cavey, and the Flipboard EDU Podcast, if I say so myself. Fun fact:  both fellow podcasters are also assistant principals.What I am most proud of in the educator podcast community is the representation of Black male voices. These perspectives can be very different from mainstream experiences. The Liberated Educator Podcasts hosted by Ken Shelton, Dee Lanier, and Brian Romero-Smith Sr.,  Educating While Black Podcast hosted by Mahlon Evans-Sinclair are great examples in America and Canada.Joining this group of podcasters is a friend of the show TaRael Key, president of the Illinois School Counselor Association, new assistant principal, and guest of Episode 26: Tackling the Achievement Gap. On his new podcast, called The Kee to Success, he discusses educating youth and shares his experiences as an educator in the COVID-19 era. I invited TaRael back to tell us more about his podcast, his reason for starting it now, and what his platform will be. We discuss the importance of sharing the perspective of Black men in education and how our contributions matter in the larger conversation of education.Flipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/b9bb917bCopyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/6cd0b356Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/fae889b3https://uppbeat.io/t/sensho/double-takeLicense code: ZQLKLMU6EZ4EZUVMhttps://uppbeat.io/t/ra/take-actionLicense code: 9OMFXRUMARMT10IPMusic from Uppbeat (free for Creators!):https://uppbeat.io/t/pryces/music-isLicense code: WO9N7QDIM5PFELOF411 Immunitea Our focus is solely on creating natural products that leave you feeling happy and healthy. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/FlipEDU?fan_landing=true)
According to a recent study, 75 percent of teachers have used videos for their own professional development in the past year. What does improvement look like for teachers? This is a question  Jim Thompson has been vigorously researching for the last twelve years.Jim, a former social studies teacher, prides himself on the teaching experience that has propelled him into successful school administration and educational mentoring careers. With more than 30 years of working in various administrative and teaching roles, he has taught at elementary, middle school, high school levels, as well as undergraduate and graduate-level students. Jim was even National Distinguished Principal and New York State Elementary Principal of the Year for the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) before retiring from that career. He currently serves as the executive director of video coaching for the Genesee Valley Educational Partnership. He also co-authored a book with Dr. Casey Kosiorek titled A Quick Guide To Video Coaching.In this episode, we discuss video as a way for teachers to expand their knowledge, create connections, and explore new ways to teach. We also discuss why it's important for educators who are interested in using videos as part of their teaching practice to understand the benefits and challenges associated with this form of professional development. Lastly, we discuss the importance of extending grace in this second round of COVID-19.Flipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/b9bb917bCopyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/6cd0b356Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/fae889b3https://uppbeat.io/t/sensho/double-takeLicense code: ZQLKLMU6EZ4EZUVMhttps://uppbeat.io/t/ra/take-actionLicense code: 9OMFXRUMARMT10IPMusic from Uppbeat (free for Creators!):https://uppbeat.io/t/pryces/music-isLicense code: WO9N7QDIM5PFELOF411 Immunitea Our focus is solely on creating natural products that leave you feeling happy and healthy. 411 Immunitea Our focus is solely on creating natural products that leave you feeling happy and healthy.

In a perfect world, there would be no sickness and especially no COVID-19. But just as I was looking forward to the end of the pandemic, the delta variant reared its ugly head. It is nearly twice as contagious as previous strains of the virus. In studies from Canada and Scotland, patients infected with the delta variant were more likely to be hospitalized than people infected with the original virus strains.As of August 18, 2021, the CDC recommends that children over the age of 12 be vaccinated. “More than 98% of US residents now live in an area with a “high” or “substantial” risk of COVID-19 community transmission — up from only 19% a month ago,” CNN reports.In this episode, we speak to the education community about starting school with COVID-19 in 2021. We ask various educators to share their thoughts on masks, vaccinations, and their hopes for the school year.Flipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/b9bb917bCopyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/6cd0b356Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/fae889b3https://uppbeat.io/t/sensho/double-takeLicense code: ZQLKLMU6EZ4EZUVMhttps://uppbeat.io/t/ra/take-actionLicense code: 9OMFXRUMARMT10IPMusic from Uppbeat (free for Creators!):https://uppbeat.io/t/pryces/music-isLicense code: WO9N7QDIM5PFELOFDisability rights group sues Texas governor over ban on school mask mandates.

As we look forward to the new school year with enthusiasm and fresh hope of returning to normal schooling, we will need even more leadership from our school leaders. Students, teachers, and parents faced an unprecedented shift in education last year which will no, undoubtedly over the next couple of years.

Sherman Batiste is Fort Bend ISD’s Teacher of the Year. Sherman graduated from Texas A&M University Kingsville with a Master’s Degree in sociology. He is also a graduate of Fort Bend Marshall High School and received a scholarship to play football at his alma mater. Although you might think this phenomenal teacher is ordinary up to this point in the story, he faced adversity as he experienced one of our country’s largest natural disasters in recent history and ensuing displacement.Sherman was one of the students, who came to Texas. He overcame poverty and adversity as he found support from principals and coaches to complete his education. Before social-emotional education was a buzzword, his varsity football coach and mentor Dennis Brantly applied some of the same techniques, which Sherman credits for his current success in teaching.In this episode, we discuss how relationship-building is at the core of teaching and learning. We also discuss how facing adversity can be transformed into a motivation to strive for excellence in teaching.Flipboard EDU Magazine Flipboard Educators Blog Flipboard EDU Podcast Website Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/b9bb917bCopyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/6cd0b356Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/fae889b3411 Immunitea Our focus is solely on creating natural products that leave you feeling happy and healthy. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/FlipEDU?fan_landing=true)
