Blasts From Your Past (Interview with Jesse Thistle)

By Chey Cheney

Chey and Pav, two experienced middle school teachers from the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, Canada, take listeners through the in’s and out’s of the field of Teaching, Learning and Leadership. Through their anecdotal, yet often comedic banter, laced with caring insightfulness, they take their audience into a conversation that is surely eye-opening and entertaining, while tackling some of the real, and ever-changing issues that exist in Education.

It’s music from your past this morning on The Drive. Also, an interview with author and academic, Jesse Thistle. His book, FROM THE ASHES, is a memoir that traces his journey from high school dropout to a rising Indigenous scholar, and everything he has learned about being true to himself along the way.
