“Don’t let those little things go and start the year with a vision of how you want your classroom to look like.”
Our guest took her first year experience in the classroom and wrote a book to help prepare other teachers to not only survive but to thrive in that critical first year. In this episode we talk to Linda Kardamis, a writer, blogger, podcaster and video course creator and the founder of Teach 4 the Heart (www.teach4theheart.com). Prior to embarking on this ambitious path she also taught middle school math for four years, including Math 6, pre algebra, and Algebra 1. She also taught English and accounting.
When Linda stepped away from the classroom to help raise her young children, she couldn’t stay away from education. Using her own early classroom experiences she decided to write a book to give helpful advice and teaching tips to other teachers. That led to “Create Your Dream Classroom” which she followed up with a blog, a podcast and an online training program.
Linda says she leans towards a more traditional teaching style, but is always open to new ideas. She also believes technology should aid in genuine learning, not just be used for its own sake.
Linda graduated from Heritage Christian School in 2004 and earned a Bachelor of Science in Math Education from Pensacola Christian College in 2008.
