Alexis Wiggins - Bring Out The "Better Than an A"

Hello, and welcome to Episode 151 of the Planning Period Podcast, part of the OnPodcastMedia Network. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.

This week on the show I am joined by Alexis Wiggins. Alexis is a high school English Teacher, former instructional coach, and author of “The Best Class You Never Taught.” Former guest Craig Randall connected us and said that Alexis would make a great guest, so I invited her on.

Alexis and I talk about her experience dealing with her father, Grant Wiggins’ legacy, her experiences teaching and living all over the world, the struggles of living and teaching in the post-fact era, how the US Education funding model by nature creates inequities that never stop, the value of teaching film, and how a great teacher will drive your curiosity.

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 151 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Alexis Wiggins.
