Happy New Year!  Can you believe it's 2022?  In this first episode of the new year, Rhonda and I sit down together to reflect about how we can reset and reboot as we head back into the classroom in January after our holiday break.


We want to thank YOU because you were the inspiration for this conversation.  We saw so many comments from brand new Whole Brain Teachers and veteran Whole Brain Teachers alike on how to make the transition back into the classroom as seamless as possible.  We know every class is different, but it feels so good to know that we are all in this together.

Got Beloved Rascals?  Now that school has been in full swing for about a month or so, it feels like we can all spot them.  We are so thankful WBT has a game for that!

This week, Rhonda and I sit down with Sarah Meador and discuss the game Open the Door.  It's so simple, but it gets to the heart of what we need to be establishing with our most Beloved Rascals... RELATIONSHIPS!  Sarah discusses the importance of just that and walks us through this amazing WBT strategy!

Thank you, as always for listening, sharing, and leaving those positive comments.  Let us know what else you'd like us to do a podcast on!  We appreciate your suggestions!  You are simply the BEST!
