In this episode, Larry is joined by Joan Gallagher, the director of the science department at Niles North High School, and the co-author of "Whole-Class Inquiry:  Creating Student-Centered Science Communities".  This conversation explores what it takes to keep your balance, and even thrive, while living with the relentless pace and the ever-increasing pressures placed on teachers.  Topics discussed include liberating oneself from day-to-day stresses, the nature of good management, living honestly while working in institutions, and teaching students how to speak truth to power.
