I’m thrilled to announce that I’m this week’s guest on the 10-Minute Teacher Podcast with Vicki Davis, where I talked about the best ways educators and schools can help children impacted by poverty.

From personal experience as both a child in poverty and as a teacher who helps those in poverty, I share what works to help kids in poverty succeed in life and learning. We’ll discuss:

  • How we start helping kids in poverty
  • Challenges for kids in poverty besides poverty itself
  • The forms of poverty and challenges of each
  • Subtle bias of educators and how to address it
  • The importance of schools in the lives of kids in poverty

The Compassionate Male Educator

Boys today are bombarded by conflicting messages about what it means to be a man.  Educators, especially male educators, have an opportunity to help boys develop a positive self image, one that avoids the toxicity of stereotypical masculinity.  However, in order to be a positive male role model in the classroom, male educators must first look internally.  They must move themselves further in the direction of compassion if they are to help those they teach to do the same. Get details
