I’m sure you can imagine the myriad of experiences that an educator with decades of experience brings to the table, but this show was truly a one of a kind episode. We experienced so many different emotions, but laughter was the one that we were struck with the most. Please tune in and listen to today’s conversation about the value of teaching health principles. Our guest is a retired educator who spent 37 years teaching students in the UK. After you listen, comment on Instagram and let us know one takeaway that you enjoyed the most.
