Principal Brad Gustafson, author of Reclaiming Our Calling: Hold on to the Heart, Mind, and Hope of Education, inspires us to find our reason for teaching and being an educator again. If you’re struggling, this is an inspiring show that you’ll want to listen to. You’ll also want to think about your “big three” of character traits for your school, team, or classroom.

Today’s sponsor: Empatico This free tool helps educators around the world connect their students. Empatico uses live video, file sharing, a partner classroom at least 300 miles (or 483 kilometers) away, and specially designed activities. I’ve been collaborating globally since 2006 and have seen the power it has to help children be more accepting of people different from themselves. That is why I’m recommending those teachers of students aged 7-11 sign up for the free site, Empatico. Just go to to learn more.
