The Better Learning Podcast is about improving education at all levels - Schools (public, charter, private, independent), Higher Education, & Corporate/Adult Learning. The major theme is to break down the silos and learn from others doing innovative things in education. We highlight innovative programs & initiatives, lessons learned, improvements to educational space, and real-world tactics while getting a deeper understanding of the people behind the innovation. Our guests include Heads of Schools, Superintendents, Principals, Entrepreneurs, Non-profit leaders and other innovators. Hosted by Kevin Stoller, CEO of Kay-Twelve.com & author of Creating Better Learning Environments.

Jamie Jo Morgan is a wife and a mother to two amazing children, both with special needs. Her older daughter has been through the Gifted and Talented program before, and her younger daughter has Down syndrome and Autism. Jamie Jo's life is filled with excitement, and she uses those experiences to shape herself as a teacher.
Teaching is her PASSION! She has been working in education and in a classroom since 2009. She loves to bring her strong Music and Theatre backgrounds into her classroom every day. She believes learning should be engaging, fun, and exciting. She thinks back to her favorite lessons from her childhood and when she learned most, and she tries to shape her lessons around the things that made those lessons powerful!
What can be said about my classroom? Well, the hands-on assignments and experiments, the strong integration of technology, and the project-based learning that takes place allow our Talented and Gifted students to explore a part of themselves without limits. The possibilities can truly become endless. Her lifetime love of learning, especially with technology, drives her desire to be the best kind of teacher she can be for her students!
