In today’s episode, Ryan and Howie welcome to the show the wonderfully talented and energetic Dyane Smokorowski or Mrs. Smoke as she goes on Twitter. Not only is Dyane a dynamic educator but she also has a long list of notable accomplishments. Including 2013 KS teacher of the year, listed by NSBA in 2009 as Top 20 to watch, Google Certified, EdcampKS Organizer, Educational Speaker, ECET2KS, Instructional Tech Coach, and Skype Master Teacher. Whew! This educator is blowing the roof off the profession but we think you will be most impressed by her passion and energy she displays during the podcast.
We hope you enjoy listening to Mrs. Smoke’s story today as she shares with us her passion for bringing Disney Magic to her school and district and how we as educators we can impact our school community. Topics we discuss range from developing engaging curriculum, working with staff to help foster a growth mindset community, and how incorporating technology, like Skype, can create a global classroom environment.
We hope you enjoyed listening to another incredible educator and true Edmagineer, Dyane Smokorowski! We really enjoyed having her on and learned a lot. We also Disney Geeked out together, which is always fun. Additionally, we hope all of you have a blessed and joyous holiday season and we wish you a truly Magical New Year!
In this episode, Ryan and Howie discuss their dreams, wishes, and hopes for gifts this holiday season. Whether you are shopping for a kid’s teacher, an educator in your family, or just going out to bring home yourself a well-deserved gift, we’ve got lots of great ideas for you.
While it’s true that our best gift this holiday season is the wonderful My Disney Class community that has been blessed with all the great educators, like yourself, that are creating classroom magic every day. Howie and Ryan share some of their other wishes for both learning as a teacher or student and some that are just plain fun. From small gifts like a set of Emoji Stamps, yes, even the poop emoji, to the larger gifts like augmented reality headsets that can be used in the classroom. We’ve got all your educational and Disney holiday gift ideas right here, and if you didn’t already know you wanted them, you will after listening to this show.
We hope you enjoy this holiday-themed episode, but more than that we hope you have a wonderful holiday season and enjoy some time off from school or work. Thank you again for making My Disney Class such a positive learning community and we look forward to growing even more in the New Year.
