This final sprint at the end of the school year is always chaos. Between teaching, grading, organizing my hot mess of a room, trying to motivate the end-of-the-year sloths called students, and trying to motivate the end-of-the-year sloth called myself, life is jam packed.
However, one thing I will always make time for is connecting with friends — especially if it involves talking shop about teaching. So, recently I had a chance to catch up with a long-time friend, long-time stud, and long-time outstanding educator and coach, Weston Kieschnick.
In addition to running an outstanding blog, CoachWeston.com, Weston also has a creative, engaging, and informative podcast, Teaching Keating. Each week, he and another educator coach a well-known teacher from pop culture. And, he was kind enough to let me jump into the game. Our teacher-of-choice? Terence Fletcher from the movie Whiplash.
