When Holly reached out and asked if I’d consider being a guest on the Edspire podcast, my initial reaction was to politely decline. The all business black and white logical portion of my brain screamed “You are NOT an educator. This is not your audience. Stay in your lane.”
I’m glad that none of the garbage circulating in my brain actually came out of my mouth, because I AM an educator. I educate firefighters on health and wellness topics. And although I don’t educate children like Holly and Danny, her co-host, I’m an adjunct faculty at the University of Denver in the Masters in Sport Coaching program. Bottom line: I am an educator; I just don’t think of myself as one!
And the conversation that we had was an important one. If you are an educator, a parent, or a first responder, the topic will resonate with you.
