There's a lot going on. Technology, grading, policy, planning, DeVos, grading, iPads, conferences, grading, Trump, classroom management, grading, curriculum, special needs, and did we say grading? - we get it. OnEducation is here to help. We have honest conversations about teachers, teaching, and everything in between. It's time we talked, and we're hoping you will join the conversation.
Meet Mike and Glen. We're educators. We've been everywhere you've been. Mike is Canadian, Glen is American. We cover all the bases. This isn't your normal teacher conversation, this is the staff room (the good ones). We are real, honest (sometimes brutally) and we are hoping, informative. We don't dodge the "tough stuff". Join us as we talk to world-class educators, and tell you what's new.
This is OnEducation. We're glad you're here. Let's roll.
In this episode guest host Mike and Glen discuss the Ontario Teachers strike, debate whether you can be an effective teacher without ever taking work home and our guest this week is educator and consultant Desiree Alexander.
