In our digital age, the transformative potential of AI can't be overlooked. Steve and I tackle this intriguing topic, highlighting the many tools AI brings to the table. From aiding students' communication skills to assisting schools in recruiting and retaining teachers, we explore the breadth of AI in educational settings. We also shed light on the pressing need to support our teachers – whether through professional development opportunities or better wages – to make the teaching profession an attractive one to both enter and remain in.

Finding the perfect school culture is pivotal to the overall educational experience. Steve shares a compelling story of how community connection led him to his job at Hartby. We then veer into the ever-evolving landscape of podcasting and how it has revolutionized the way we connect with educators worldwide. Closing off our discussion, we emphasize the power of education and inspiration in shaping students' futures. So, prepare to be enlightened and inspired by a conversation brimming with insightful anecdotes, practical advice, and boundless optimism for the future of education.
