Brent Coley – Episode 15

Hello, and welcome to the Planning Period Podcast, your #EdBreakroom, I’m your host Brad Shreffler.

This week, I chat with Brent Coley, elementary principal in Southern California, and host of the Teacher Tales podcast.

As all my guests do, Brent answers my three questions, and the conversation goes off from there. In this episode, we talk about educational funding, and how the lack of it prevents the change that we all want to see in education, the power of Twitter, both for teachers and for students, and the importance of making students know that you care.

Before we get to the episode, I have a quick announcement. I have setup a store to make gear for the podcast. If you’re interested in getting a shirt, mug, sticker, or even phone case, sporting the show logo, checkout my store at

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 15, my interview with Brent Coley.
