Hans Appel - It's Not About a Curriculum

Hello, and welcome to Episode 150 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 Hans Appel. Hans is a middle school counselor in Washington, the co-creator of the Award Winning Culture brand, book, and podcast, and a member of the Teach Better Team. You may remember that I had his wife Jen Appel on the show a few months ago. I loved my interview with Jen, and have heard Hans a couple times since then, so knew he’d be a great guest for the show.

Hans and I talk about his work with Award Winning Culture (character, excellence, and community), how a traumatic experience brought him to remembering his why, how we need to find the purpose and relevancy of school, how all teachers need to step from consuming content to creating content, and how his mom was the best teacher he has ever had.

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 150 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Hans Appel.

Hans, thank you so much for joining me for this, the 150th episode of the show!
