[Serena Pariser on BAM! Radio Show: 10 minute episode] Teaching Middle Schoolers in 2022: What Still Works and What Rarely Does
Have you ever considered teaching middle school? Are you a current middle school teacher or administrator? I was invited to the BAM! radio show to talk about everything middle school. This is one of my favorite topics to talk about, as middle school is often misunderstood.
A few weeks ago I was invited onto a video panel interview with three other phenomenal authors including Matt Jones, Matt Rhoades, and ETIENNE (a.k.a. The Rockstar Teacher). In this video, we answered nuts and bolts questions about how to start the writing process, how to keep the momentum going, and how to get into publishing. We also shared our own personal journey with our books. This was so much fun! Happy watching! (The full video link is found on the next page when you click on the picture above).
I recently interviewed with Laurie and Matt Jones of the Teacher Saves World podcast. We discussed the topic of time management and what that looks like during Covid. We covered a lot! To name just a few we discussed virtual accountability buddies, virtual learning preparing students for the workforce, delegating virtual responsibilities, and making teachers’ lives just a bit easier during distance learning.
As we start to close down our virtual classrooms and head into summer this article by Larry Ferlazzo is every so important. I was invited to contribute to this much needed article highlighting the importance of relationships. As we head into summer and start thinking about next year, there are things we can do to proactively set ourselves up to be ready to have strong relationships with that enhance the learning, decrease disruptive behaviors, and overall give you more time to teach in a classroom. Read the full article here.
I wanted to take a second to talk about my second book Real Talk About Time Management: 35 Best Practice for Educators. For this book, I worked in collaboration with Dr. Edward DeRoche. So, who is Ed and why did decide to collaborate? Let me explain.
Ed is a time management B-O-S-S. He’s been a teacher, a principal, a Dean of the College of Education at University of San Diego, and has won the Sanford Lifetime Achievement Award for Character Education.
Here’s the second article in the time management series for teachers working from home during COVID. This best practice comes from my second recently published book Real Talk About Time Management: 35 Best Practices for Educators. Enjoy!

Here’s an article I just wrote for Corwin Connect advertising my 2nd book Real Talk About Time Management: 35 Best Practices for Educators. This phenomenal book was written in collaboration with Dr. Ed DeRoche. I was grateful to have the support of Dr. Edward DeRoche as my second author.
Let me get real with you for a minute. As teachers, we often forget that we have the power to transform the classroom if we see the momentum in our classrooms draining. Right now is the perfect time to do this- if needed. The second half of the school year can be the most engaging and stimulating for these reasons.
I was elated to be invited again to write an article for Corwin Connect. This topic is ever so important, especially as the honeymoon period quickly wears off as we head into October. I’ve included a handy short assessment you can take to quickly see how you are doing.
Here is a podcast I did with Arizona K-12 Center to give practical tips to beginning a school year with engagement and connection. This information is so helpful for any teacher about to start a new school year. Happy listening!
