It's podcast Friday! Today I explored the complex yet satisfying life of writer and educator Kelli Watson. Kelli's unique outlook on the process of creating is simply exhilarating. We spoke about The Chill Out Teacher, which is a blog created by Kelli to explore the inner workings of an educator's day to day world. Kelli sheds light on the many ways her life has changed since becoming a mother and wife. According to her, it took these radical developments to reign in her insatiable will to work around the clock. Now, Kelli focuses on creating a sustainable work-life balance while keeping the high standards she set for her self since the beginning of her career. Kelli and I also dive into more complex topics such as race in the classroom and what the best path forward is for educators and the system alike. I think you guys are going to like this one, so sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
