What does an extraordinary educator do during their one-year sabbatical away from the classroom? If you are Brian Page, star educator at Reading High School in Ohio, the answer is “a lot of things.” In his return visit to the NGPF podcast, Brian shares how he spent his year away from his beloved classroom. You will learn why he has come back to the classroom even more energized (which, for those of you who know Brian, is saying something) and eager to implement new ideas to engage his students. I encourage you to keep up with Brian on his Twitter feed @FinEdChat. Enjoy!

About the Author

Tim Ranzetta

Tim's saving habits started at seven when a neighbor with a broken hip gave him a dog walking job. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim getting to know the bank tellers quite well (and accumulating a savings account balance of over $300!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a shredding truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies and helping families make better college financing decisions. After volunteering in 2010 to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and activity-based curriculum, which inspired him to start a new non-profit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
