I love all the guests I've had on the podcast so far, but this guest was special because I don't think I would have started this podcasting adventure if it wasn't for the inspiration Brian gave without even knowing me. His podcast "Talks With Teachers" is one of the most popular educational podcasts out there. He brings inspiring stories from some of the best teachers around. When I was still in my infant stage of teaching I started listening to this podcast and realized that it was okay to fail, some of the best teachers in the nation had bad days and lessons go terribly wrong. In 2013 was when I started listening. I would listen in the car on my way to work, morning runs in the icy cold weather to warm me up - corny I know. But true. It gave me ideas on how to be better, and it also helped me to stop being so hard on myself.
Along with his podcast and blog, Brian is a contributing writer for Edutopia, creator of aplithelp.com and #aplitchat on twitter. He is in his 13 or 14th year as an English teacher - he’s wasn’t sure of the exact number. He currently teaches AP Literature and Composition, creative writing, and public speaking at Miller’s Place High School in Long Island. He’s also a varsity basketball coach, husband, and father of 2. In this episode We talk about finding balance for all the things, the moment he decided he wanted to become a teacher, the book that introduced him to a love of reading, his morning routine, and the new journal he created called the Daily Teacher.
