Welcome to the Teachers’ Lounge

Episode 24: Terrance

December 6, 2018

This week, Jon speaks with Terrance Wilson, an upper school English teacher at Lausanne Collegiate School in Memphis, TN—and Jon's former colleague and mentor from his time at Lausanne. Terrance and Jon discuss Terrance's first few teaching jobs (one of which involved Terrance literally competing for his students’ attention while a carnival was going on outside); Terrance talks about his identity as (in his words) an “intellectual late bloomer” and how that led him to teaching and impacts his approach in the classroom; and he shares his thoughts on the importance of choosing good material that engages students, allows them to connect it to their lives, and activates their curiosity about the world around them.
