Ms. Val Durfee is our guest and she’s talking about starting her career at 50 and being a non-traditional student throughout the journey. She also points out the glaring lack of discussion when it comes to being a teacher marked with a non-renewal status. She finishes up this extended episode with a practical examination of her first year of teaching and how her classroom management was at the start and at the end – and how she managed to learn, change, and become a better teacher through it.
