Reunion with Elif Kaynak, Diana Danciu, and Sarah Lalonde

By Chris Cluff

It’s amazing how many rabbit holes one man can encounter when he’s chasing squirrels! Join Chris Cluff as he finds, explores and pushes the boundaries in education.

Welcome to the podcast’s 1st year anniversary episode … or just call it the ‘really, really’ episode.
Either way, sitting down with with these three guests again, one year later[ish], and reconnecting the dots from our first convo was awesome. When we last met Elif, Diana, and Sarah, each of them was working their way through the teacher candidate maze of experiences. Now, all three are walking more of the talk and seeing EDU with a ‘more teacher, less candidate’ POV. 
In the podcast we wrestled with questions like: What are the hard convos you would like to be a part of? What are you becoming, besides a content specialist? How do assumptions make simple things become complex? Do you learn best in calm or storm? AND what do you feel is baked into EDU?
I am proud to be a part of their process and wish them the best of luck for their career in education.
