Interview 8 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 Theodora Pap, who is a teacher in Greece and one of our most active 30 Goals participants. In fact, the reason I interviewed her was because she did something which is the first in 30 Goals history which was come up with a goal. Theodora, during one of our 30 Goals Facebook group polls, suggested we list our Book Print, which is a list of 1 to 5 books that have changed your life in some way. The idea is to list them and let us know how they changed your life. In the interview, Theodora, tells us how Kafka’s Metamorphosis changed her life. Watch the other recorded video interviews on this Youtube 30 Goals playlist.

A New Idea: Tagging Participants

I am letting you decide who I interview next by a tagging system. When I interview a current participant, that participant will name another current participant for me to interview next. Theodora Pap tagged Hana Tichá, a teacher from the Czech Republic.
