Katelynn Giordano – Equity and Running 6th Graders

Planning Period Podcast

Hello, and welcome to Episode 115 of the Planning Period Podcast, part of the OnPodcastMedia Network. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler. This week on the show I am joined by Katelynn Giordano. Katelynn is a Middle School English teacher, blogger, and content editor for the Teach Better Team. I reached out to one of my Edu podcasting groups and said I needed to line up an interview for a specific night and time due to some travel issues coming up, and if I didn’t, I wouldn’t have an episode for this week. One of the members put me in touch with Katelynn, and so she became another of my podcasting blind dates. Katelynn and I talk about her passion for being in the classroom, how weird 6th graders are, equity in education, what kinds of systemic issues are still present in education today, how important it is to continue conversations that make us uncomfortable, grading problems including those caused by technology, the importance of reflecting and working on yourself, and the power of saying “no” to students sometimes, when it’s for a reason. So, sit back and enjoy Episode 115 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Katelynn Giordano. 50 Minutes – coughing while talking Katelynn, wow…just thank you so much for joining me on the show. It was so much fun chatting with you! To connect with Katelynn, find her on Twitter @kngiordano. Same on Instagram. You can also visit her website CurriculumCoffee.com. If you have comments or questions about the show, you can always connect with me on Twitter or Instagram, @BradShreffler. I love to hear from you all there and that’s also a great place to connect if you’d like to be a guest on the show. Or, checkout the Feedback Page on my website that gives you other options for feedback as well, which you can find at BradShreffler.com/Feedback. Until next week, allow yourself to stay in an uncomfortable place to better yourself.
