This summer, I’m doing a special three-part podcast series that offers a deep dive into my personal story: where I’ve been, where I’m at, and where I’m going.
That’s because this summer marks TWENTY YEARS since I started my website and began sharing teaching ideas online!
Episode 282 is the third installment of this series.
If you haven’t yet listened to episode 278 called How I got here: Reflections on 20 years of sharing teaching ideas online and episode 280 Where I’m at: Reflections on who I’ve become as a person and educator, I highly recommend you back up and start there.
Usually, you can listen to my podcast episodes in any order you want, but since this is basically my life story, what I’m sharing in this episode will make a lot more sense if you’ve heard the beginning of what happened.
In this final installment of the three-part series, I’m talking about what’s next.

Listen in as I answer the following questions:
- How I grapple with imposter syndrome, maintaining relevancy, and criticism of my work
- Why I view my work in terms of years-long problems I’m trying to solve over the course of a lifetime
- How I plan to translate my experience and accumulated wisdom into my next big project
- Why I plan to focus more on connecting with educators via my email list and podcast instead of social media
- A dream my husband and I have for supporting educators in a way that leaves a lasting legacy
- How rediscovering lost parts of myself, childhood interests, and hobbies apart from work shapes the perspective I bring to teaching
- Why I think the future of schools is nearly impossible to predict, but am committed to uncovering new possibilities and finding the good
- How I stay hopeful amidst so much bad news, and the perspective that keeps me feeling balanced, energized, and optimistic
Anything you’re still curious about?
If there’s anything I didn’t talk about in this podcast series that you’re still left wondering, I’m doing an AMA (ask me anything) episode next month!
