My teacher world sure grew when I started this blog. Even though I've never met a single one of them, I find it pretty cool that I have blogging teacher buddies from all over the country. Barbara Gruener from The Corner on Character is one of those friends. When I reminisce about how amazing it would be to have a counselor at my school, I think of Barbara. She's definitely the standard.
She recently started a podcast called Character Speaks, and she and I spent 30 minutes chatting about some of the ways I teach to the heart, not just the head in my classroom. I'd be honored if you listened in. I know Barbara would as well.
