Teachers share in podcasts
The 2016 New Mexico Teacher of the Year David Morales, a teacher at Mayfield High School, is featured on the podcast “Leading from the Classroom,” a new series featuring firsthand accounts from the state teachers of the year.
Each episode is four to seven minutes long and features a different teacher sharing a personal and poignant moment that crystallized the importance of teaching and of being a teacher. Morales talks about his father’s experiences after immigrating from Mexico and his own efforts to support immigrant students and their families.
The series is produced by the not-for-profit educational services organization Northwest Evaluation Association, in partnership with the Council of Chief State School Officers.
The first seven episodes, including Morales’, are available on NWEA’s multimedia site, Teach. Learn. Grow, at http://www.nwea.org/2016TOYPodcasts. To listen to Morales’ podcast, visit http://nwea.us/ DavidMoralesTOY.
