Inspired Educators' Stories: What Motivated You To Be an Educator?


Episode 1: In this inspired educators’ stories podcast, host Phil Brown sets the stage for back-to-school 2020. Reaching out to teaches, he asks them a deeply personal question: “What Inspired You To Become An Educator?” What follows is a genuine display of conviction and motivation from six educators who are returning to work this fall. Each teacher shares their answer to why they chose this profession, often traveling back in time to when they themselves were attending school.  As a result, many different personalities present themselves during the course of the podcast.

One educator describes discovering their passion for working with young people through sports. Another elaborates on the powerful mentorship experience of finding a teacher who believed in them. While a third educator explores their passion for shepherding kids through transitions, specifically when helping hard-to-reach students. Likewise, when it comes to school, education is much more than just teaching content. Rather, it’s about helping others realize their own potential. That’s why as COVID-19 continues to affect us all, High 5 Adventure lends its support and well wishes to teachers as they begin a new 2020 school year!
