Interview 2 of The 30 Goals Challenge for Educators. Click the link to find out more about the 30 Goals Challenge for Educators.

For 2013, we are Hanging Out with some of the past and current participants of the 30 Goals Challenge for Educators. Today, I had the pleasure of hanging with Tyson Seburn. I met Tyson on Twitter but I got to visit him in Toronto, where he is president of the TESL Toronto teacher organization. It was like meeting a friend I had known for years. Watch the video, take the slideshow quiz, and/or leave Tyson a comment!

The live video Google Hang Outs on Air will be shown live on the 30 Goals Interviews Page when they take place. You can hang out with us while the interview takes place and ask the interviewees questions, too! We will be interviewing Lisa Dabbs next. You can also type in a question by visiting our 30 Goals Facebook group and adding your question there. The recorded video interviews are on this Youtube 30 Goals playlist.
