Parenting With Playdate Planet – How Can We Return Joy and Purpose to Teaching and Learning?

If you’re tired of hearing about the problems in our education system and in our homes, and would rather learn what teachers and parents can do now to return the love of learning to their students and children, than this is the show for you. My guest, Dara Feldman, M. Ed. was Disney’s 2005 Outstanding Elementary Teacher of the year. She is also on a personal mission to enhance the lives of children by teaching educators how to get kids excited again about learning. To this end, she wrote a wonderful book, THE HEART OF EDUCATION: Bringing Joy, Meaning and Purpose Back to Teaching and Learning, she’s taken on the roles of director of education for The Virtues Project and The “V” Channel, and she speaks worldwide on this topic. On this week’s show, she talks with me about simple changes that teachers and parents can make in how they talk with each other and with their children that can have amazing impact.

Take a listen and then I would love to know what you think. Drop me a line at
