Teachers come in all shapes and sizes in terms of their style and personality. Some are loud and circulate the classroom constantly. Others are quiet and remain at the board to share their knowledge. The most important factor in a classroom is student learning and that is tied to teacher effectiveness. The truth is that…

Today, I’m talking with Michael Miller of Michael Miller Solutions. He is an entrepreneur, tutor, and photographer.

Michael and I go way back. I was an assistant principal at his high school. By the way, he never was in trouble just in case you were thinking that … nope, he was a focused student and swimmer.

Michael now is an academic tutor who helps kids understand math and standardized tests.

He almost was a college student forever and he wants to help kids not make the mistakes he made. 

You will hear about the number of years, number of universities and the missing of a point to where he was going. He has a mission and that is to help students not follow his path.

michael_miller__solutions_300.jpg

Michael, also has started selling photographs. Wait till you see his amazing photos. He has quite an eye and knack for capturing nature and the outdoors. Go to his Esty page and his Instagram account to check out his pictures. 

etsy_page_250.jpg

Michael says that he helps kids learn how to think not what to think. He focuses on thought processes not just getting answers.

mikethemathman_on_instagram_350.jpg

Michael also has written a book on leadership that is in the process of being edited. The book includes his thoughts about everything he wished he knew or advice that he should have followed. Look for that coming out soon.

Michael also reflects on what it is like being in charge of his own business.

Thanks for listening.

If you’re a regular listener of Truth for Teachers, you know I like to focus on very practical, actionable strategies that every person listening can implement. Today’s episode is going to be a slight departure from that. This episode is a chance to dream, to imagine new possibilities, to rethink everything about the way your school day is structured.

I’m going to be talking with Jodi Fletcher, a principal whose team had a vision for a really innovative way to support kids in personalized learning and project based learning. Listen in as she tells the story of what that dream looks like now that they’ve made it a reality for 500 kids.
