The Square Pizza podcast focuses on the intersection of education, innovation, and diversity. We host and interview leaders doing incredible work around the country to ensure all students have access to an equitable education. The Square Pizza podcast is hosted by SchermCo, a social-impact implementation firm that offers strategic implementation and project management services to schools and education-focused organizations across the country.
Welcome back to the Square Pizza podcast. This week, Greg got to connect with Barry White Jr. a passionate educator located in Charlotte, NC but also known around the world as The Handshake Teacher because of a viral video. We at SchermCo had the pleasure of working with Barry while he was a fifth-grade teacher at Ashley Park. He’s now the Dean of Students at University Park Creative Arts School and today he shares with us:
– Why The Office will forever be his favorite show
– Why he started his signature handshake connection with students and what it was like being interviewed by stars such as Steve Harvey and Kevin Hart
– and finally, some of the technologies that are helping him connect with students during this time of remote learning
We hope you enjoy the episode!
