FRED KOEPP 

 Fred is a Speaker, High School Soccer Coach, and Student Success Agent who believes in the power of acknowledgement.

 
In seventh grade, he was bullied to the point of taking his own life, but joined an amazing student council where he heard a speaker who helped spark a change in his attitude toward the people bullying him. Instead of trying to fight back, Fred said, "If you need anything, let me know."
The bullying ended soon after.
 

Since seventh grade, he has focused on increasing community within the schools he was attending. He led his student council in ninth grade and was class president his senior year of high school. He started doing activities for students every Monday in high school such as "Trivia-Monday", "Life-Saver Monday", and "Selfie-Monday" to help build fellowship between his peers.

In college, he was a Resident Assistant that focused on building community through events and connecting in the lunch room. He created a table where he would invite people sitting by themselves or in small groups to come join him. The group caught on and eventually grew to have over 50 members.

He called it the Table of Love.

Fred is thankful that he was taught the power of acknowledgement and would now like to return the favor and help others find their own Table of Love.

Today's Guest: Dina Loannou

 

In her ‘day job’ Dina works as a Teacher Educator and Trainer at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) in the field of ESOL.  She’s been a teacher for over 22 years - or longer if you count the times she played teacher as a child. 
 
Dina is also founder of Lessons-in-Self, she is at her happiest sharing her life’s journey, by inspiring and empowering others to becoming the person they are destined to be through her transformational Education for Life programmes, which she’s presented at teachers’ conferences in Switzerland and the UK as well as teaching her methodology at schools.. 
 
She’s developed programmes that aim to support and develop wellbeing, or a healthy sense of Self which can be used  by both teachers and learners alike. Though on first appearance these activities appear unassuming, they have the creative potential to reach a much deeper level. Linguistically, they are so simple they can be used with almost any level and teaching context within an ESOL context too. 
   
Teacher burnout is increasing and is an international epidemic (Rankin 2016), with this in mind  Dina’s  current programme aims to support teachers who feel (or think, but not sure) they’re going through burnout.  The programme is based on Positive Psychology and Wellbeing interventions and tools. "I believe that burnout happens for a reason. My mission is to explore the positive effects of burnout as a catalyst for change and to help teachers go from burnout to brilliance.

Today's Guest: Jami Duncan

 

Hi my name is Jami Duncan or, Teacher Jami! I have been independently contracted with a Chinese company called VIPKID for a year and a half. I teach English to children in China through video conferencing. 
 
I was previously a science teacher in Florida for 5 years before deciding to work full time at home with VIPKID. I love the flexibility of making my own schedule and being able to work anywhere that has good internet. 
 
I have an Associate in Science degree in Zoo Animal Technologies from Santa Fe Community College, Gainesville Florida, and a bachelors degree in Environmental Science from the University of West Florida, Pensacola Florida. I’m very passionate about animals and worked in the zoological field for several years before transitioning to teaching. 
 
I currently reside in Pensacola Florida with my husband, 2 dogs, 1 cat and 1 rabbit. Working from home has allowed me to continue my passion for helping animals and we often foster orphaned puppies and kittens.
