96 – Jeffery Frieden: English Teacher, Author, and Podcaster

By Tim Cavey

JEFFERY FRIEDEN is a teacher, blogger, presenter, and podcaster. He enjoys connecting teachers and building professional relationships in order to intensify impact on learning. He is also the author of Make Them Process It: Uncovering New Value in the Writer’s Notebook, published in 2017.
In our conversation, Jeffery shares how and why he was bluntly called out by a neighboring teacher and explains how that incident contributed to his personal and professional growth. He discusses what overzealous educators can do when colleagues have heard enough, and talks about the powerful impact of finding your tribe in a professional learning network. He goes on to describe a personal passion outside of education, identifies the productivity hack that allows him to create content as a husband and father of four, and lists some of the resources that shape his thinking and inspire his practice today.
