Motivating Today’s Students with Kurt Bascom

By Dan Kreiness

The Leader Of Learning podcast explores transformational leadership in education. It is where educators can come find inspiration to transform education through effective leadership. It is a community where educators can realize their leadership potential regardless of their position or title.

In episode 126 of the Leader of Learning Podcast, Dr. Dan Kreiness (@dr_kreiness) interviews Kurt Bascom (@kbasc118), a middle school social studies teacher and varsity football coach in the Bronx, New York. In the episode, Kurt discusses how difficult teaching has been during the pandemic, how students have been “different” this year, how to find a good balance when dealing with students, and what teachers can do to be successful heading into 2022.
