Howie and Ryan welcome their partner and pal, Brian Collins back to the show to participate in some summer dreaming! Howie was inspired by a song in the 2008 Tinkerbell movie titled, “Come Fly With Me” and in this song is a line about dreams. So on today’s show, Howie, Ryan, and Brian are going to share what their childhood dreams were and what dreams they have now for their futures and the future of My Disney Class.
Summer To-Do List
We are sharing their plans for this summer and giving their thoughts on what teachers should make time to do this summer as well.
These suggestions run the gamut from organizing your classroom to bingeing your favorite Disney + shows and movies.
We look at how some summer planning for school can be beneficial for the year that’s coming up and how you can take advantage of your summertime to find professional development.

Teach With Magic With Kevin Roughton
Ryan and Howie welcome Kevin Roughton. Kevin is a middle school history teacher at Jurupa Middle School in Jurupa Valley CA not too far from Disneyland! He is an educational speaker, author, and was also selected as an Outstanding Middle School Educator of California Counsel For The Social Studies. Let’s just put it this way, he’s a great educator and he’s on a mission to share his experiences and Disney and gamification to help better our profession.
End of Year Engagement and Magic
Ryan and Howie are dreaming of those lazy summer days, but with that comes the reality that school is not out yet. We discuss activities, tips, and lessons learned that will hopefully help you tackle those last few weeks of school and leave you with enough energy to enjoy that well-deserved Disney vacation.
Thanks again to all our listeners and remember to leave feedback on iTunes / Apple Music and join our community of Disney-loving educators over on our Facebook page, Educators Who Love Disney.
Using Disney To Teach Business And HR With Jaime Williams
Join Jaime as we talk about Disney in the classes that she teaches at the University of Mississipp, as an instructor in the Business School at the University. Enjoy her examples and reasoning's to why Disney is such a great model for teaching business and HR concepts that her students need to learn so they can be successful in the corporate world. Being the Disney fan she is, Jaime has some really good examples.
We loved hearing her passion for education and had fun discussing her Disney fandom.
Magical Lessons Gone Virtual
Ryan and Howie look to help educators who are still teaching remotely or may teach remotely from time to time.
On today’s show, Howie and Ryan pick up with this idea of teaching in a new normal and adjusting lessons to fit new restrictions. This time they tackle updating lessons to be taught in the virtual world remotely, both asynchronous and synchronous. They again choose lessons from their book, this time a few new ones, and attempt to modify them to be done remotely through Zoom
