17: Teaching Outside the Comfort Zone

No one likes being uncomfortable, yet brain science shows that the most growth happens outside of the comfort zone. When we are exposed to new scenarios, new challenges, and new adventures, our brains literally grow and we become more capable of solving problems and thriving in our work. 

It's neuroplasticity, and it is fascinating. 

In the latest episode of the podcast, we talk about how this applies to teaching and ways we can thrive outside of the comfort zone so we can help students do the same. 

Whatever you are doing this week, whether it is laying on a beach or backyard, walking down sidewalks or school hallways, I hope you have a little time to listen to this episode and feel inspired to step out of your comfort zone in some way. As I talk about in the podcast, doing so is guaranteed to bring you life and growth.
