In today’s episode, we’ll go over five creative ways to share your passions. Some of these are part of my regular practice of sharing things I’m passionate about. Others I’ve tried a few times and loved, even if they’re not on my daily, weekly, or monthly way of sharing. 

Best of all… All of these ideas are ones your students can try, too.
