Ep10 - Will Gourley: "What's in your way?" "Let your heart be your guide"

Image result for Will GourleyIt only took 10 episodes but I finally got to chat with Will Gourley, but I am glad that we finally made it happen. Will is an elementary teacher in Ontario who enjoys all things TED Ed. He was part of the 1st cohort of TED Ed Innovative Educators and recently did a TEDx talk in Kitchener. He brings a lot of passion to his role as a classroom teacher.

The Rolland Chidiac Connects podcast is an indirect result of Will's positive influence on me to innovate. You can imagine how happy I am to be able to chat with one of the people who have helped me "move forward" in a new and exciting way.


Listen in to what Will has to say about TED Ed Clubs, his role in education (Grade 6 Teacher), his work before becoming a teacher, his University experience, the benefits of failure/mistakes and what success is for each student, growth mindset, his TEDx talk, what motivates him as an educator, student  voice, helping others with motivation/inspiration, and blogging.  

You can connect with Will on Twitter (@WillGourley), his About.me page, and/or his blog
