the journey from just awful to great teacher

Great teachers are always great. Right? Wrong. Most of us start off teaching by making mistakes — LOTS OF THEM. Lou Zulli is a pro. He’s been teaching for more than 39 years. And yet, today, he remembers the times he failed.

He calls himself the teacher from Ferris Bueller’s day off — he says he was so boring — that was then. This is now. By sharing his authentic journey, you’ll feel empowered and excited to be a better teacher.

Hats off to my friend Lou for his professionalism and authenticity. Today’s episode is a heartwarming trip into one man’s journey to become a better teacher.
