Kyle Hamstra - Impacting Lives

Hello, and welcome to Episode 153 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 Kyle Hamstra. Kyle is a STEM specialist, former 5th grade teacher, and edtech advocate. He and I have been loosely connected for the last few years, so I was excited to finally get him on the show.

Kyle and I talk about the power of impacting another life as an educator, why we’re crazy enough to become an administrator, the difficulty of balancing standards and engagement and relationships in the classroom, the importance of teachers getting connected, and how parents can have the greatest impact.

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 153 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Kyle Hamstra.
