34-Phases Of A First Year Teacher
Hello and welcome back to Connect FCS Ed, I'm your host Barbara Scully. Do you remember your first year as a teacher? Were you hired as an afterthought?Meaning you are hired after the start of the school year. Are you a career changer in the education field? Or did you go to school to become a teacher? We all became teachers because we wanted to make a difference in the lives of the up and coming youth. We all have a teacher that impacted our own educational experiences, that made it all the better.
33-Dr. Randy Russell, Speaker, Author and Consultant
Welcome back to the Connect FCS Ed podcast. Thank you so much for tuning in, I'm so glad that you're here. A couple of weeks ago, we just finished up my Washington fall virtual FCS conference, and let me tell you, it was amazing! During one of my workshops, I was introduced to one of our keynote speakers, Dr. Randy Russell, who is author to the Three Ships relationships, leaderships and partnerships. Dr. Russell is a superintendent, an author, as well as a leadership consultant and he shares about self-care and the power of self-care, which doesn't go just for family consumer sciences, it goes across the board for all educators.
32-New Approaches in E-learning and How to Become a Resilient Teacher for Tomorrow
Hello and welcome back. In today's episode, we're going to be talking about new approaches in e-learning and how to become a resilient teacher. So back to school, it loomed over many of our heads with so many unanswered questions about students, families and communities around these United States in the world, educators having to pivot school year and pave a new path in unfamiliar territory, completely adverse to what the institution of education has always looked like and felt.
As an educator, we are living in the most technology-advanced time period in history, we are capable of taking on this challenge in restructuring our diverse and content-rich curriculum and make it accessible to any student anywhere, any time, when it comes to synchronous versus asynchronous teaching.
31-Teaching FCS with Technology
Hello and welcome back to Connect FCS Ed. In today's episode, I'm going to be talking about teaching FCS with technology.
By teaching students virtually, I have been researching best practices since March. I have learned a lot about how to effectively create and implement digital instruction and self-paced learning. In this episode I will be sharing some of the resources that have helped me feel successful as a teacher.

Another great resource!
I also went through the Great Plains IDEA program, and it is great to hear it getting promoted. There are several resources out there for teachers in general, but not as many geared specifically towards FCS. This podcast itself is a resource for us, but also leads us to several other valuable resources during this time.
