    38. Happy Birthday, Dad

    38. Happy Birthday, Dad

    My dad, Bill Flesch, turns 55 on April 9! He is a longtime teacher and I wanted to use this platform to sneakily gather some colleagues and family to surprise him! He is so modest, but he truly is a wonderful educator. In this episode, people from my dad's school talk about what makes him such a fantastic educator, the impact he has had on them, and some family members stop by to say happy birthday!
    -
    Dad: I cannot imagine where I would be today without you. YOU are the reason why I became a teacher. I love you, and I hope you enjoy this episode and go back to it whenever you need to remind yourself just how awesome you are! 
    Your son,
    Hunter

    37. Creating Change Through Feedback and Risk-Taking (Dave Schmittou)

    37. Creating Change Through Feedback and Risk-Taking (Dave Schmittou)

    On this episode, I am honored to host the legendary Dave Schmittou. Dave is the Director of Leadership & Development for the Teach Better Team. He’s the author of several education-based books, one of which we discuss in his interview. He is a former elementary school principal, former middle school principal, assistant principal, coach, and teacher. I brought Dave on the show because of his powerful message surrounding feedback, how we can get outside of the cookie-cutter method of providing it, and how to truly use it to change schools. Dave also has a massive focus on empowering educators to take risks, and he talks about practices leaders can utilize to build a positive culture around risk-taking. But most of all, I brought Dave on because he is so brutally honest and vulnerable. He doesn’t hide his flaws, and he uses them in such a reflective manner that is such a great example for all educators to emulate.

Best podcast for teachers!!

Schools of Thought is the best podcast for educators!! Hunter is a 7th grade science teacher in Des Moines, Iowa and he brings guests on his podcast to share their insight on education from all over the world. I have learned a lot of great tips for my own classroom and have grown as an educator from the diverse perspectives. 10/10 highly recommend subscribing to Schools of Thought!!

Educators, this is great!

I’ve been an avid listener to Hunter’s podcast, and let me just say, it’s so refreshing! I get to hear so many great stories that we as educators need to reaffirm us of why we chose our profession. I know that I’ll always going to be a life-long learner, and there are so many incredible ideas I can apply to my very own classroom. Hunter, thank you so much for your dedication and pouring out your advice for new as well as seasoned educators.

Great host. Great guests.

The best way to learn about effective teaching is through the stories of those who have come before you. Loving this podcast!
