Episode 162: ADHD, Trauma, and Living Your Purpose with Master Teacher, Kathleen Germs
Reading is everywhere and in everything we do, but most reading curriculums taught in schools aren’t aligned with the current research on the most effective way to teach reading. Kathleen Germs, a second-grade teacher and Instagram educator, is on a mission to change not just the way reading is taught, but the entire dynamic between teachers and students in the classroom–starting with asking kids what they need to learn best.
Unsurprisingly, Kathleen’s students adore her because she makes learning as easy as possible and helps them feel empowered and valued in the classroom. Join our conversation as Kathleen explains how she adjusts her lessons to meet her students’ needs, the importance of bringing mental health into the classroom, and how her ADHD makes her the phenomenal teacher that she is.
