Episode 68: In AWE of Tara Martin--Champions Series

In AWE Podcast

Tara Martin is an enthusiastic educator, national speaker, and author who thrives on change and refuses to settle for the status quo. She has served as a classroom teacher, an instructional coach for several years, and most recently, a district administrator. As the founder of #BookSnaps, the latest reading comprehension strategy currently implemented in seventeen countries, she is always seeking unique ways to make learning fun, relevant, and meaningful. Tara is the author of the inspirational book, Be REAL: Educate from the Heart and Cannonball In, a motivating children's book illustrated by Genesis Kohler. Tara firmly believes machines and artificial intelligence will never replicate an individual’s REAL identity–the unique strengths, talents, and life experiences of every human. Tara's passion for education and love of writing led her to a new role where she coaches and serves educational authors as the Director of Public Relations and Communication for DBC, Inc. Tara recently launched her own podcast,  The Real Journey Show. Tara’s ambition is to lead a culture of innovative change, keep social-emotional learning at the heart of our work, and encourage others to Cannonball In and fulfill their true potential! In this episode, we engage in a deep conversation about how Tara champions for so many that she serves including those who read and hear her message about being real and cannonballing in as well as the authors she serves in her role at DBC Inc. I loved hearing about how Dave Burgess was her champion to get that first book published, and she shares vulnerably and lovingly about two educator champions who had a significant impact in her own life. I loved every part of this conversation and you can hear me get emotional at the end from her insights. What an honor to share with you Tara Martin’s Champion story.
