During this episode, I interview a future teacher and current student-teacher Ally Echard. Ally is a secondary English major with a theatre minor. She is student teaching this semester and couldn't be more excited to impact students in her new role. Ally shares about her teaching story and how teaching is a service. We are there to serve our students and I love this mindset that Ally shares.
She goes onto share that students can make an impact now they don't have to wait to impact the world. They are making changes and encouraging others to change their way of thinking and in some cases their actions. Ally is excited to speak into this generation of students now to help them to learn, care, grow, and share.
Ally shares that at one point she was struggling with her teaching identity wondering if teaching was the right fit for her. She shares a learning experience that she had in a middle school classroom where she worked to get to know her students as people. She shares an impactful story from Christopher Emdin 's book and applied it to her own teaching experience. This was a great story to hear! Ally shares, "Be excited about teaching because students are going to be excited if you are!"
