She is a retired history teacher who spurns the fake and the phony. To her, teaching only works when the instructor lives a life that is genuinely real
Welcome to our first podcast: an interview with Martha Woodard, a teaching legend on Vashon Island.
Martha was a history teacher, a lover of humanity, a supportive friend and mentor to many other teachers. She who inspired those who worked with her.
But most important, she is just … folks. Good people. Real. Authentic.
Today, Martha is retired and living with her husband John on Vashon Island. She loves retirement, and is playing with the idea of publishing her father’s book. He passed before he could publish it.
In this interview, we discuss what it means to be a teacher, and to be human.
In the next week, you’ll be able to find this podcast on iTunes, Spotify, Audible, and Soundcloud. For now, you can only find it here.
So pour a glass or a cup, pull up a chair, and join this conversation.
