Welcome to Episode 4 Season two of The Educator’s Room podcast! In this episode, Franchesca interviews Christina Gil, former seventeen-year public school veteran about why she decided to use her mid-life crisis to leave teaching and go and live on a homestead community in rural Missouri.
Every teacher has gone through it- days where you wonder if the kids are becoming more difficult or if it’s time for you to try something new. Well, our guest tonight, Christina Gil did that she’s here to discuss teacher self-care and her experiences. Tonight we will talk about implementing the Genius Hour in middle and high school.
During this podcast we will discuss:
- why she left teaching in New Hampshire to live in a rural community in Missouri.
- how she was able to financially afford to leave teaching and she manages her budget.
- how she homeschools her two small children and how that’s totally different from teaching high school English.
- advice for teachers who are looking for something “new” but want to stay close to teaching.
