Our host, Jon Hinthorne, interviews a most wonderful and unconventional (yet still conventional too) teacher, Kim Sorenson. Kim is an 8th grade English Teacher at the Charter School of Morgan Hill in Morgan Hill, California. In this episode, Kim explores how she balances between both conventional and unconventional methods of teaching English.
In this episode, Kim shares with us a couple unconventional teachers moves such as asking her students to chose a goal for her to accomplish along side them as they set and achieve their goals. Beyond modeling what she expects from her students, she shares with them who she is as a person. Needless to say, her colleagues and students love her!
She is a true gem in this profession.
