Lauren Valla, a middle math teacher for 15 years as well as a parent to two young children is the guest speaker on this episode of the podcast. The conversation topic is about teaching everything that you want to teach, and how to use projects to cover more topics. Using project based learning is useful because learning can be woven into it and not feel so much like learning. Mrs. C gives tips and shares her knowledge with Ms. Valla as they go back and forth with the conversation. More questions arise and they continue the conversation about how to integrate topics into learning or just talk in the classroom.
