A new Every Classroom Matters Episode

In this episode, Dr. Brad Johnson joins Vicki to talk about improving teacher talents, proven ways to engage students and student leadership. Brad says if we follow this approach we can help teachers be six times more engaged in teaching and have a three times better quality of life.

Important Takeaways

  • Brad shares what you have to have from teachers before you can get students engaged.
  • Students need a reason to want to come to school. ECM Awesome Educators – this is why YOU are so important in your classroom. YOU make all the difference in the lives of your students, but we need to know how to look at them differently, as Brad shares.

I love Brad’s formula for student success! (I made it into a pinnable image for you at the bottom of the show notes.)

What Teachers Say

A listener from Maryland, Jeanne Mayo posted on Facebook about finding the strengths of teachers too:

Great show… Not only will I try to discover the strengths of each student but staff member too. This can certainly apply to professional development.
