Joseph Pizzo - Roar of the Greasepaint, Smell of the Crowd

Hello, and welcome to Episode 154 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 Joseph Pizzo. Joe is a 47 year teacher of middle school students. He is passionate about his content in English, his students, and learning.

Joseph and I talk about his passion for teaching and how education has changed over his time, what the role of technology in education should be, how education needs to be a true profession and teachers respected as professionals, and how teachers need to use their best talents to be the best teacher they can be, and great teachers find ways to involve students in their class.

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 154 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Joseph Pizzo.
