Join Weston, Molly, and a bottle of wine as we use iconic teaching moments from movies and television as a vehicle to reflect on instructional practice. We invite you to laugh, agree or disagree, and work toward discovering exactly who you are and where you stand as an educator.

Weston is a former high school teacher and administrator who now works as a Senior Fellow with the International Center for Leadership in Education. His work as a keynoter and instructional coach has afforded him the opportunity to learn alongside teachers and administrators from all 50 states and more than 30 countries around the world.

Molly is a former elementary and middle school teacher who now works with teens and young adults in parochial education programs around Colorado. She and Weston are the parents of two elementary aged children who provide additional fodder for an ed-centric podcast.

Cheers!

Humorous but with quality content

This was my first time listening to your Podcast and I am your newest fan! I love how you take a moment from a movie as the basis for a discussion about the teaching profession. You bring up some really great discussion points and it's authentic that you don't have the same opinion! Can't wait to listen to more!

Movie lover and teaching? 2 of my favs!

I can’t say that I’m a consistent listener but whenever I do listen in —like today— on a road trip —when I heard the episode on blackfish ... I’m not only getting a great movie to think about showing my kids( and/or watching myself !) I get a quick connection to some great ideas around parenting and teaching, yay! So ... thank you Weston and Molly! Dr. Jenny Severson
