Classroom Transformation with Choice with Kyra Sandstrom
Play • 22 min

Episode Summary: Today's podcast episode is really a student-centered learning success story. We get to chat with Kyra Sandstrom, who is one of our Passion for Progress students and I love how this is all worked out for her. When she took our course ("A Passion for Progress: Becoming a Rockstar Teacher in a Stressed-Out World") in the summer of 2020, she kept coming back to the point that she is teaching third graders and while all student-centered learning sounds great for maybe middle school kids, definitely high school kids, she just didn't understand how it could work for the younger students. I kept telling her just try it, just try it. So, in her first year in teaching third grade, and teaching kids both on Zoom and in the classroom, she implemented what we taught her, and not only is it working amazing, but she's now training other teachers on how to do this method of instruction. Super inspirational. Lots of great ideas.
