In this episode I interview Tim Bowman, a teacher, author, and entrepreneur from Australia.  In addition to having the best accent of anyone I’ve interviewed yet, Tim has a great deal to share from a teacher’s perspective.  His book Forget Being the Favourite: 88 Ideas on Teaching Differently is destined to become one of the most important and useful books for helping teachers improve their craft.  We talk about some of the highest leverage strategies teachers can use and how to support that work from an administrator’s perspective.  I learned a ton from Tim and really enjoyed our conversation.

Tim is also the founder of Class Creator, a software program designed to help schools with one of the most unpleasant tasks that leaders face - creating balanced class lists.  You can learn more about Class Creator and Tim’s work at www.classcreator.io. You can reach Tim directly by email at Tim@classcreator.io.
