As a survival expert and former US Navy Air Rescue Swimmer, Brian Dickinson, delivers one of the most powerful experiences you will ever hear. His story exemplifies what it takes to face adversity and overcome impossible obstacles, leaving audiences inspired to conquer their greatest fears. In 2011, Brian soloed the summit of Mount Everest, but then went completely snow blind on the descent. Hand over hand he made his way down blind and alone. What should have taken 3 hours to reach high camp, ended up taking him 7 hours. Brian took a major fall down the south summit and eventually ran out of supplemental oxygen, but through determined faith and focus he survived the impossible!

In today's Two Minute Timeout for Teachers I want to focus on a quote from one of my students that I feel can really impact how we teach. Her quote to me was this: "Imagine if every teacher would teach every day like they were being observed." Do your best to show your students how much they matter, how important they are, and how valuable their education is, by taking the time to giving all you can everyday and being the teacher they deserve.

Teachers at Work: Designing Schools Where Teachers and Students Thrive is a new report produced by 100Kin10. Today, I'm talking with Talia Milgrom-Elcott the co-founder and executive director of 100Kin10. 

Teachers at Work: Designing Schools Where Teachers and Students Thrive focuses on what needs to happen in schools to make its teacher corps want to stay and inspire youth. In the introduction of the report, this is stated: “When teachers flourish as professionals in schools, they leave the classroom far less frequently and have significantly  higher satisfaction.” Talia talked with me about this statement as well as much more concerning the future of schools, its students, and its teachers.

Under her leadership, 100Kin10 which is focused on training and producing  100,000 STEM teachers in 10 years is becoming a reality as more than 250 leading organizations from across sectors have come together to make the goal possible by 2021.

Talia is a frequent public speaker and moderator, focusing on social innovation, science and technology, education, philanthropy, and the tenuous balancing act that is running a start-up, being a mother and trying to have a life.

Widely known for her thought leadership, she has been published or profiled in The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, the Smithsonian, CNN Money, and US News and World Report.

Talia lives in Brooklyn with her husband and three children.

Great information. Lots to learn and share.

It’s not unusual for a teacher to suffer from a case of the “shoulds” – a ubiquitous and harmful affliction that affects ALL teachers (ok…everyone). When images of Pinterest-perfect classrooms and abundant sharing on social media are paired with less-than-ideal student work or a miserable teaching environment, teachers start thinking about the things they should be doing. Here’s my personal experience as well as how I plan to deal with it.

Intro

Hi everyone! And welcome to Books Between - a podcast for teachers, parents, librarians, and anyone who wants to connect kids between 8-12 to books they will love for a lifetime.

I’m your host, Corrina Allen - a mom of two tweens, a 5th grade teacher, a Ravenclaw, and celebrating all things Harry Potter this month!

I believe in the power of stories to give us the language and situations to help us identify and make sense of what is wonderful in our world. And give us the words and the way to fight against the injustices we see.

And few books do that better than Harry Potter. Across generations parents and educators who grew up inspired by Rowling’s stories are sharing the books with the children in their lives.

In today’s episode you’ll hear some short clips from a variety of librarians, and parents, and educators, and authors about how much the series has meant to them.  And the special moments in their lives that were made a little more magical by Harry Potter.

And then I’ll share with you a lenghtier conversation from across the pond where I chat with two of the founders of #HappyPottermas - Annaliese Avery from Suffolk in the UK and Lorie Barber from Chicago in the U.S.

Defintely check out #HappyPottermas on Twitter and all the Monday night #MGBookChat topics throughout December will be all about Harry Potter! And I really would love to hear YOUR thoughts about Harry Potter as well So, if you are interested in being featured on this podcast later in December, just check out the link posted in the show notes, which includes very quick and easy instructions on to submit an audio clip to me.

@MikeSzczepanik on Twitter writes, "I was recently inspired by Matt's Sticky Notes post (mentioned in this podcast) and used it for another idea: Student card sorting. I have attached a little "Engage" activity I am doing with my Biology classes Cell Unit. The students sort some cards into two piles representing "Has cells" or "Does not have cells"

I have attached both the student assignment and the directions that go with it. Thanks for the inspiration!"

Sharon Taylor, New Zealand -- Google Slide decks a lot following our discussions. Two problems: FIRST, track who has done what (deleted each other’s work), Slides doesn’t seem to be color coded as well as Google Docs. Need something more accurate. SECOND, when everyone is on the slide deck, there are lots of glitches. Could be our wifi.
