Wholehearted Teaching
with Adrian Del Monte
In the podcast, we hope to inspire educators to bring their whole selves into their classroom everyday. Through powerful conversations, we will explore how teachers can see their classrooms and students as extensions of who they are as people. We will help you embrace your calling as educators, teaching from authenticity, vulnerability and the power of the heart.
