First year teacher, Delaney Brummel, chats with us about being cool with being “the loud one” in her school, helping kids get comfortable sharing failures with each other, and focusing on keeping things student-centered.
Delaney shares how she keeps a smile on every day, the power of remembering there are actual humans in our classrooms, and reminds us that you don’t need to be a veteran teacher to bring value to others.'I'm not doing it because I have the next lesson to do the next day. I'm truly excited to see them.' - @ms.brummel from episode 111 of #TeachBetterTalk #Podcast #TeachBetter Click To Tweet
