I love all the guests I've had on the podcast so far, but this guest was special because I don't think I would have started this podcasting adventure if it wasn't for the inspiration Brian gave without even knowing me. His podcast "Talks With Teachers" is one of the most popular educational podcasts out there. He brings inspiring stories from some of the best teachers around. When I was still in my infant stage of teaching I started listening to this podcast and realized that it was okay...

We all have goals in one form or another, and some come to fruition and others die quickly. I’m talking about the big lofty goals because many times we want them to happen tomorrow, but what about the lightweight goals underneath the heavier ones. Are those most important?
Weekly Challenge: I challenge you listening to reach out to a friend you haven’t seen in a while and ask them to join you in an activity. See if they want to go to a movie, bowling, out for drinks, a walk, hike, or maybe even a yoga class. Sometimes, our comfort zones keep us from reaching out and showing we care. This is a simple challenge that we can all accomplish. Who is your reach going to?

On today’s episode we have author, teacher, podcaster, and triathlete - and did I mention she has Cerebral Palsy-CP for short. She just turned thirty and the sky is the limit for this expert on everything CP. In this episode, we discuss self-publishing a book, the triathlon in Hawaii she attempted, and her podcast "Butterflies of Wisdom" which I was a guest on her show. We learn a lot about how a disability can't stop you from accomplishing your dreams.
If you are like me you love to collect journals with the hope of filling them up, and then months go by and nothing. I always have these grand ideas of "I'm going to journal today!" I get pumped and at night I write my thoughts - maybe even the next day I write something down and like any new skill, the excitement slowly fizzles and the journals start collecting dust. I have a nice collection of journals.
There are numerous amounts of health benefits to journaling, and here are some...
On today’s episode, we have Sean Carney, and this episode is a little different from previous shows because Sean isn’t a teacher in the traditional sense. He will be teaching us some things today about his profession. so think of it as a guest speaker to the classroom. A few years back, I taught a 7th grade ELA class and I had a quiet student named Logan, but Logan had a talent. He had the deepest voice I've ever heard from a 7th grader. Lets just say I would have enjoyed listening to him...
