17 – Chalk (with Hal Bowman)

By Sara Candela

This show explores the way teachers, students, and education are portrayed in movies, television, and pop culture in general.

Today, we welcome Hal Bowman, veteran teacher who now runs Teach Like a Rockstar, a program that brings him to individual schools and sold-out crowds where he energizes teachers and administrators around his mantra, “Every school can be a phenomenal school.” 

Hal chose the mockumentary, Chalk, for our discussion, and listening to this episode will find you hearing all three of us cringe in horror as we realize how awful the profession of teaching looks to those on the outside.
