In our seventh episode of the Teachers on Fire podcast, we chat with Jane Silversides, primary classroom and dance teacher at White Rock Elementary School in White Rock, British Columbia, Canada.
In this interview, Jane fills us in on what’s special about second graders, recalls a funny story from her early days in the classroom, and shares about what’s igniting her passion in education today. She also answers the question of “If you weren’t in education, what would you be doing?” and gives us great recommendations for a Twitter account to follow and a book to check out.
