Nashville, TN (PRWEB) June 01, 2012
Dr. Rod Berger’s new audio forum focuses on one of America’s leading educators about the high calling teachers have towards students and their families. Cindi Rigsbee, educator, author, speaker and consultant, speaks with Dr. Berger about the the nature, challenges and opportunities of interactions being a teacher provides.
Ms. Rigsbee is a three-time Teacher of the Year and author of “Finding Mrs. Warnecke: The Difference Teachers Make”. She has been featured in such national venues as ABC’s “Good Morning, America“. Her compelling book shares the story about the life-long impact her former teacher, Barbara Warnecke, had on thousands of children and directly nurtured Cindi to explore her lifelong passions. Subsequently, Rigsbee has become a National Board Certified Teacher with more than twenty years of experience acting as regional education facilitator for the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.
“It’s an honor to interview someone of Cindi’s stature and perspective. Cindi’s view of education comes from a perspective well-rooted in both theory and practice,” says host Rod Berger. “Our discussions explored teachers’ high calling, but discussed at length how educators should grade work, not judge behavior.”
Dr. Berger’s The Core of Education’s production schedule includes interviews with Richard Culatta (Deputy Director, Office of Education Technology, U.S. Department of Education), Lord Jim Knight (Director, Step-A International), David Weston (Chief Executive, Teacher Development Trust), and Ian Fordham (Co-founder, The Education Foundation).
