One of my very favorite Portlandia sketches is She’s Making Jewelry Now.
The song is about the struggle to find career fulfillment. I identify with this song so strongly because I while I have found fulfillment in my teaching career, it was a struggle to do so.
That’s why I have started the Sustainable Teaching podcast. My mission is to talk with teachers about what we can do to make our profession sustainable for us and the school day engaging for our students.
I tell the story of my teaching career in my pilot episode. I was honored to have someone whose awesome work I admire, Kendra Tyler, as my guest for episode 2. Please click the podcast logo below to listen to those two episodes. Every week in March I will release a new episode with another awesome teacher.
Thank you for listening. I would love to hear your feedback. Please comment below or send me a tweet at @TomEMullaney.
