#74: TEACH – LEE PARKINSON
Does the way we TEACH need a shake up? Whether you loved or loathed homeschooling, we’ve never been so aware of what our kids are learning (or not) at school. The hugely popular Lee Parkinson, aka Mr P, joins me to talk fatherhood, education, and what life as a teacher during a pandemic is really like. We explore:
- Innovation in education, and what that means for us all
- Lee’s passion for empowering teachers to use technology in the classroom
- Why great teachers burn-out and leave
- Higher order multiples as Lee and I are both parents to triplets!
