Dr. Michael Armbruster – Power of Technical Education

Hello, and welcome to Episode 79 of the Planning Period Podcast, your #EdBreakroom. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.

This week on the show I am joined by Dr. Michael Armbruster, Associate Superintendent of Career and Technical Education in a large district in Central Florida, my district. Mike and I have a lot of mutual friends and he is always a great storyteller, so I knew he would make a great guest on the show.

Dr. Armbruster and I talk about the shift in stigma around technical education, the benefits of those programs, the problems with our model of education, how budget plays into school decisions, the importance of facilitating in the classroom, how technology has changed the paradigm of teaching for a generation, and how great teachers last in your memory forever.

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 79 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Dr. Michael Armbruster.

Thank you, Mike, for taking the time to be on the show. You did not disappoint!
