We compare how when tragedy strikes, we seem to bind together and make things better.

Must Listen for All Educators

Every educator should listen and learn.

Don is not talking educational theory; he is doing and implementing change in his public school classroom.

The list of top-tier guests that he has had on this podcast is incredible! Any innovative educator would be listening to many of his guest podcasts and reading their books. The guests and their discussions with Don should inspire innovative change within our schools.

I recommend that you go through all of the past podcasts and share with your educational colleagues, your students, and parents. There are enough soundbites that should get your school community thinking and learning.

Thank you Don and your crew for your impactful educational podcast that ties the entrepreneurial business world to the educational world.
