Wow - I have my first celebrity on the podcast! Does this mean my podcast is finally blowing up?

On this episode, I chat with Chris Patterson, the Upper School Director and English Teacher at Appleby College.  However, in the evenings, he is also one member of the iconic Canadian musical comedy group, 'The Arrogant Worms'!

In our conversations we talk about balancing our teaching careers with our life passions - music and comedy. So many young teachers struggle with balancing their life due to the immense amount of lesson planning out of school. Add that on with a possible family, kids, marriage, relationship, or friends, how are we supposed to find time for ourselves?

On this episode we talk about:

  • Who are The Arrogant Worms?
  • Is it possible to have a passion outside of teaching?
  • How do we balance the classroom and our passions?
  •  Creative writing - how do musicians write their music? How do comics test their jokes?
  • Chris is a hilarious, entertaining and great individual. You won't want to miss out on his stories of teaching and touring on the road!
