For episode 38, I had the pleasure of interviewing James Sturtevant, a 31-Year Teacher extraordinaire at Big Walnut High School and Author of the book You've Gotta Connect: Building Relationships That Lead to Engaged Students, Productive Classrooms, and Higher Achievement.  Mr. Sturtevant was referred to me by previous guest Jim Burson (Jim Burson Interview 1 & Interview 2.  You will love his energy and commitment to serve his student.

James has been around great teachers his whole life.  His father was a history teacher at Muskingum College (now Muskingum University).  He graduated from Muskingum with his bachelor's degree and then Ohio State with his master's degree.  He is married to Penny, the principal at Big Walnut Middle School.

Here were some of our discussion points:

  • his tipping point were he made up his mind the teaching profession was his path
  • how to connect and to engage all types of students
  • The influence of Daniel Pink's book A Whole New Mind and TedTalk, as well as John Hattie's Visible Learning for Teachers:  Maximizing Impact on Learning
  • why it is important to move beyond "nostalgia" and embrace the present and future
  • the classroom value of acceptance, communication, non-verbal communication, safety, enjoyment, & advocacy
  • sharing stories
  • the impact he hopes he has made and thoughts on serving others in his future
