Show Topics:

Today we talk about Memorial Day and give thanks to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the service of our country.  The soldiers who serve our country have a united purpose, we discuss how we can use their purposes to our gain. And can a teacher find purpose in the classroom, even when those he or she is teaching seem to find nothing of importance?  We tackle these questions as well.

Plus, I talk about some of the podcasts I listen to and give you a brief description of each. Plus, as usual, I talk about a new book and an old movie all in this episode of Purposeful U.

This movie is older, but a wonderful story on race and fairness, timeless.  I showed it to my 7th and 8th grade students and they loved it!  The Great Debaters stars Denzel Washington and Forrester Whitaker, I recommend it.

Michael Hyatt’s new book Platform is fantastic, check it out and put it into practice

And here is the Wheel of Life I promised!!!
