This podcast explores writing in education with our guest–Justin Minkel. Justin is an elementary school teacher and was recently named the Arkansas Teacher of the Year. He was also given the Milken Educator award. He teaches in a high-achieving public elementary school where 97% of the students live in poverty and 85% are English Learners. Minkel previously taught 4th grade in Harlem, New York City. His writing and commentary have been featured in the Washington Post, Education Week, and a bunch of other places. I recently had the opportunity to have lunch with Justin at restaurant downtown and fortunate to be able to ask him a few questions. The food was excellent…and so was insight.
