WarningThis episode contains language that some people may find offensive or distressing.

Show Description

Angie Greene's been surrounded by Professional Sport since she was a young kid.

Her Pop, Frank Sedgman was a champion tennis player, her dad Russell is in the Australian Football League Hall of Fame, and her two brothers were, and are talented athletes.

Their sports journeys though have been very different.

Steve went on to play AFL football at the highest level for 5 years. Brent however, removed himself from team sport altogether because of the homophobic language he'd hear on the sports field and in sports environments in general.

Angie saw what her brother was going through, over many years. Add in the sexism, and racism, and she didn't want to be part of sporting environments either.

That was till she started, Stand Up Events, an organisation that's challenging sexual and gender discrimination in sport.

Have you figured out that to help you with the classroom you need to buy stuff that will help you? 

Don’t get me wrong the school often will have supplies that will help, but to really get a leg up on working with the kids you need to buy stuff.

Well, since this is the case the best places to get this stuff is where you will find it for cheaper than at department or retail stores.

You know what I am talking about right?

Oh, yea…

You need to make visiting flea markets. garage sales, yard sales, church sales, thrift stores, and estate sales a habit. They can be your best friend.

Here are my 3 Reasons Why Fleamarkets, Yard Sales, Thirft Stores, and Estate Sales Are Your Best Friend

1. Organizational Stuff

2. Teaching Stuff

3. Cool Stuff

So what are you waiting for? Start this weekend! Seek out those things that will help you work with your kids.

Time to uncover treasure.

Season 5 has come to a close, and I'm looking ahead to Season 6. I would love your feedback on what's working (and what's not.)  

I'm particularly interested in your thoughts on the new episode formats I tried this season. Are you enjoying the interviews with experts? How about the coaching calls I'm conducting with teachers? 

I've also felt like the podcast eps have slowly gotten longer over the years...is this a good thing, or would you rather me stick to the original 10-15 minute time frame?

I'd love for you to take just 3 minutes to let me know your thoughts. You can sound off on anything you've been thinking about the podcast, and let me know if there are any topics you've hoped I would cover.
