The beginning of another school is upon many of us and some teachers do amazing things on the first few days while others either don’t know how or can’t or think they can’t make the first few days of school engaging and less about the rules and regulations.

In this episode, we discuss and explore a number of ideas you can implement at the beginning of the school year. Our conversation was inspired by an episode of StartED Up with Don Wettrick.

We also speak to special guest, Robbie Lindes about his own experiences on the first days of school from a student’s perspective.
