Chip Harbin – Episode 34

Hello, and welcome to Episode 34 of the Planning Period Podcast, your #EdBreakroom. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.

This week on the show I am joined by a really good friend of mine, Chip Harbin. Chip is a former reading teacher, now behavioral dean. Chip is also one of the most personable, funny, and just ridiculous guys I know.

Chip and I talk about a lot, including class size and school size issues, the problems with funding, the importance of building relationships with your students and your peers, and some interesting consequences of that, and the most unique answer to the best teacher question I’ve ever heard.

True to form, Chip gets off topic quite a lot, and if you ask me, this is one of the funniest episodes of my show yet.

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 34 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Chip Harbin.

Listening back to that, I noticed two things. One, I laugh a lot in that episode, and two, I laughed just as much listening back to it. I hope you all enjoyed it as well.

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, keep moving towards the best education can be.
