In this episode, I’m joined by Julie S Hasson, author, educator, story collector and speaker. Julie speaks about how we remember our teachers, the importance of building strong relationships with students and how to care for our own safety as teachers.
Dr Julie Schmidt Hasson is a professor in the Reich College of Education at Appalachian State University. She is a former teacher and school principal. Julie’s research on the impact of a teacher is the topic of a TEDx talk and is the focus of her engaging professional development programs. She founded the Chalk and Chances project, a vehicle for elevating and celebrating teachers, in 2017. Her latest book, Safe, Seen, and Stretched in the Classroom, was released in November 2021.
