Why I Love Teaching: A Video Series

I've been doing a video series called "Why I Love Teaching." It's basically a daily reflection on why I feel lucky to get a chance to do this gig. The following is a list from newest to oldest. Feel free to check out other videos (or even subscribe) on my YouTube channel

Professor. Author. Speaker. Maker.
I want to see kids embrace creativity. As a teacher, this has meant murals, documentaries, STEM camps, and coding projects. As a dad, this has meant quirky pillow forts and home-made pinball machines. This is why I co-wrote Wendell the World's Worst Wizard and co-founded Write About. I am convinced that design thinking can thrive in every content area, which is why I am launching the free design thinking course this summer.
