Podcast On Your Plan ep29 with NWOSU

Full Disclosure: my intro is a little long winded as I also include updates about the standards (currently being reviewed by the Legislators), so feel free to skip ahead 13 minutes for the real action!

Screen Shot 2016-02-08 at 5.20.16 PMI had the pleasure of visiting with future Oklahoma teachers currently studying at Northwestern OSU in Alva! Professor Jennifer Oswald (Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 11.53.48 AM@JenJenReaderO) allowed me to visit and discuss the new ELA standards with the faculty and students and then podcast with two outstanding future education leaders, Morgan Renbarger (Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 11.53.48 AM@MorganKylee10) and Mercedes Keys (Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 11.53.48 AM@maserati26_2). This is a great episode to share with other first year teachers or teachers in training and I always think it’s informative to know what’s on our future educators’ minds.

Podcast On Your Plan ep 28 with Jennifer Williams

IMG_20151104_103229704_HDRI’m a Jennifer Williams fan because of her love of designing curriculum around the needs of students. It’s not easy writing lessons each year, but a lot can be learned from building original lessons. Jenn also played a big role in starting ELAOKTeachers.com! In this episode, Jenn and I reminisce about how we met and talk about writing lesson plans. Follow Jenn on Twitter at Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 11.53.48 AM@JennWillTeach!

Screen Shot 2016-01-12 at 11.27.27 AMThis is the 2016 kick-off episode of Podcast On Your Plan and I could not have had a better guest to start the new year – Oklahoma State Superintendent of Education, Joy Hofmeister!

We chat about 2015 highlights, the 2016 outlook, I ask for advice and guidance on leadership, advocacy, and stewardship, and you won’t want to miss her answer to the one thing about education that needs to be #DisruptED. I’m very appreciative she could meet and have coffee and I look forward to what’s ahead. You can follow all her adventure on Twitter atScreen Shot 2015-05-28 at 11.53.48 AM @Joy4Ok.
