Episode 30 – Dr. Will Deyamport

Hello, and welcome to Episode 30 of the Planning Period Podcast, your #EdBreakroom. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.

When I started this show in May, I didn’t think far enough ahead to plan out my year, figure out what weeks what episodes would release, or consider reaching the end of 2017. Yet, here we are. This is Episode 30, and will indeed be the end of the 2017 year (released on December 29th if you’re listening on release day). I would like to start this episode by saying Happy New Year to all of you, and thank you all for joining me on this journey so far.

I’m not one for New Year’s Resolutions, and I am tremendously happy with, and proud of, the way this podcast has grown in the last 8 months. So, instead of some crazy goal for the next year of the show, I’m just going to enjoy the ride.

This week on the show I am joined by Dr. Will Deyamport, most commonly knows as Dr. Will. I know Dr. Will from the Edupodcasters Voxer group I’m in, and as I say in the interview, he adds so much to that group. He is just completely and utterly himself, and it is fun to listen to.

Dr. Will and I calk about the problems with testing and over-reliance on it, teachers needing to make that money and manage their brand, and the power of being a connected educator.

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 30 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Dr. Will.

A thousand thank yous to Dr. Will for bringing your unique style and energy to my show. It was a ton of fun to record and I am sure my audience will enjoy listening.

If you want to connect with Dr. Will, he’s on twitter @iAmDrWill, and you can also find his podcast wherever you listen to podcasts by searching for “The Dr. Will Show” or clicking the link in the show notes.

If you have comments or questions about the show, you can always connect with me on twitter, @BradShreffler. I love to hear from you. That’s also a great place to connect if you’d like to be a guest on the show.

Until next week, remember that is isn’t only OK to make that money, but that’s exactly what you should be doing.
