BreadCast #3: Beacons

Aug 4th, 2017 | By | Category: BreadCast, Featured

The August episode of BreadCast features Vermont teacher, writer, and blogger Moira Donovan reflecting on twenty years as a rural educator. This conversation and reading, inspired by a visit with BLTN’s Dixie Goswami, draw from Moira’s 1996 Bread Loaf Teacher Rural Teacher Network Magazine essay, “The Wholeness of Teaching: Moments of Survival,” and Moira’s recent blog post on her blog, Nine Cent Girl

    Nicely done, Moira. Like you my Bread Loaf experienced has pretty much informed my world view, the ways in which I interact with students, colleagues and the larger world, generally. It opened me to the larger world and helped me as I encountered new and numerous challenges. It provoked me to share in ways I might not have, previously. Story is everything.

      Hi Sally. I agree that teachers’ and students’ stories matter deeply. In my conversation with Moira–and I hope this comes through in the podcast–I was moved by her commitment to tell her own stories habitually, and to share that process with her students, and a wider public audience.
