Teach Me, Teacher
#128 Teachers Save Lives (Nicholas Ferroni pt.2)
Hello everyone! Today on Teach Me, Teacher, I am continuing my talk with Nicholas Ferroni! Last week, we discussed why men in the classroom needs to be something seen more often, and this week we dive deep into what teaching is, how powerful it can be, and how we should all take part in making the messaging about teaching POSITIVE.
I had the pleasure of hearing Nicholas speak at Get Your Teach On this year, and I KNEW I had to have him on the show to share his insight and perspective on education.
Nicholas Ferroni is a nationally recognized educator and activist who educates, mentors and inspires students to reach their goals while driving a national dialogue about education reform.
Named “Upstander of the Year” by the HRC (Human Rights Campaign) for his outspoken advocacy and support for LGBTQ youth, Nick was also noted as one of the “100 Making a Difference” and one of the “Most Influential Educators in America.” His expertise and strong opinions about education and revisionist History have made him a sought after expert on national platforms including ABC’s ‘The View,’ MSNBC, ABC, HLN and more.
It’s hard to find someone as outspokenly POSITIVE about education than Nicholas, and I’m honored to have him on the show.
