Latest episodToday’s guest is our Yoga instructor, Angela Newport, whose only regret in life is having no understanding of what regret feels like. As you’ll soon hear, Mrs. Newport has played so many different roles in her career here at MHS that it is clear that she isn’t hesitant to take on new and exciting opportunities like creating a Yoga program at our high school before it even became a consideration at most schools. During today’s episode, you’ll hear the story of how that program came to be and why Angela believes it is such an important opportunity for our students to take advantage of. You’ll also hear about how you can take the work she is doing with students and use it right away in your own classroom, as well as her thoughts about what it means to teach in a small community like ours.e of Mac Town Heroes
