EP 006 | Thinking Like a Teacher: a Conversation with Matt

Georgia & Christine are coming at you from Florida today in a really candid conversation with former principal turned curriculum designer, Matt. It’s clear why Matt was an effective educator & principal  - his story feels like listening to a really motivating TED Talk! 

Matt shares how leaving the classroom allowed him the ability to care for himself - he found time to get back into swimming, baking, and even lost 50 pounds in the process.

This episode brings up topics ranging from taking care of yourself “there’s only ONE you!”, how our soft skills as educators are our biggest asset, & some favorite memories from his classroom days. If you are curious about curriculum design & wanting to learn more about the impressive clients Matt has worked with (hint: 1 institution is older than our country & NOT related to education), make sure to tune in!
