The Summer Series with Tim Stephenson

By Chey Cheyney & Pav Wander

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.

In the second episode of The Staffroom Podcast Summer Series, Chey and Pav talk to Tim Stephenson, who is the Host of the podcast Science360. He is a Prime Minister’s Award recipient, author and astronomy teacher from Langley, British Columbia, Canada, and with him Chey and Pav talk a little more about his book, “Beyond the Classroom” and the experiences that led him to write it. 
A phenomenal conversation to get us thinking further about the impacts of streaming on the education system as it exists today, and what we need to do as educators to dismantle the expectations to create new norms for the students that we teach.
