    Performative Allyship & Gatekeeping Within Our Schools

    Performative Allyship & Gatekeeping Within Our Schools

    I am so excited to welcome Liz Kleinrock from Teach and Transform onto the Podcast. In this episode, Liz breaks down anti-bias, and anti-racism work. She highlights the ways our schools fall into the trap of performative allyship, and exposes forms of gatekeeping within our classrooms, schools and districts. Her words are POWERFUL, so feel free to do what I did and listen to this episode more than once.

    Morning Meeting: The Most Important Part of Our Day

    Morning Meeting: The Most Important Part of Our Day

    Morning Meeting is easily the most important part of our school day. It is the time when my students are welcomed into their classroom, they have an opportunity to preview their day, engage in shared reading, build community, and learn about one another. Responsive Classroom emphasizes the need for students to feel safe, valued, and respected before they can be expected to engage in any academic tasks. Morning meeting is the key to making that happen!

Together we'll dive into the very real statistics of our climate crisis, and Heidi will support us on this emotional journey to understanding our carbon footprint, the privileges we hold as we look at this global crisis from a social justice lens, and often the guilt we feel from not knowing. Heidi is going to walk us through ALL of this today.

Inspiring, always

I actually need to force myself to slow down and space out all of Jillian’s wonderful podcasts so that I can give each episode the reflection it deserves. I take notes during these podcasts and think of them as professional development. Jillian is WONDERFUL and honest and inspiring. She discusses wildly important topics, and I am so appreciative of her sharing her wealth of knowledge with anyone who wants to listen.

Love at first listen

I typed in “teaching” and this came up, I didn’t expect to be blown away but listened to every single episode after the first one. Jillian’s voice is a warm, cheerful hug with thoughtful advice on how we teach in our classrooms. Although she teaches primary and I teach 5th grade, so many of her ideas and thoughts carry over into upper grades as well. She has me questioning the “why” behind many of my procedures and policies and my classrooms. I would 100% give a listen if you’re looking for inspiration in your classroom. Looking forward to more episodes!

Bad Financial Advice!

The guest you had in financial planning was just saying so many things that are not the best way to handle finances! As a listener of Dave Ramsey I was literally yelling “NO!!!” at half the things she said. Encouraging people to use credit cards for the “rewards” is a easy way for people to end up in the hole and you should not be investing in your retirement until your debt is paid off. Dave Ramsey’s baby steps. Look them up before listening to a random person who wrote a blog and now thinks they’re an “expert”.
