Season 4, Episode 8: WrestleMania Season is Here


Do you smell what the Pod is cooking? This week, we’re talking all things WRESTLEMANIA! And before you laugh me out of the arena — I think there’s a surprising amount of insight that teachers can glean from this larger than life pseudosport. From the scripted theatrics to the pulse pounding spectacle, the low-key comradery to the all-out cooperation, sports entertainment actually shares quite a bit in common with the wacky and wild world of classroom teaching. So let’s tune into this week’s podcast for a closer look behind the curtain!

Recorded in bumper-to-bumper traffic to and from my daily work as a high school instructional coach just outside of Washington D.C., Talk to Mee in the Car is where a brainstorm and a good old-fashioned brain dump collide to help educators hone their skills and become leaner, meaner, 21st century teaching machines. Join me for a quick hitting 15 (ish) minute episode every Monday for tips, tricks, and strategies to change the game in your classroom TODAY with high-energy, student-centered teaching that actually works.

Because one size fits all professional development simply doesn’t.
