We have a special guest on our show today and his name is James Lyas, aka Bond with James! He’s a high school biology teacher who has a lot of experience in education as he was an assistant principal, a master science teacher, a PLC leader, and an instructional specialist! He has a big following on all his social media platforms as he shares his hands-on science activities in the form of blog posts, pictures, Facebook Live & You Tube videos, and in his Teachers Pay Teachers (TpT) store. Check out his TpT store as it features biology and chemistry products such as: card sorts, interactive notebook and task cards.
How did a news segment inspire him to become a teacher author? How does he find the time to work on his products whilst teaching full time? Listen in as he talks about his struggles in getting his Teachers Pay Teachers store and brand up and running alongside teaching all day. How do color-coded post-it’s help him stay organized? How does he stand out amongst the vast number of teacher authors out there? He follows entrepreneurs to stay motivated such as Gary Vaynerchuck, a serial entrepreneur, CEO, investor, author, public speaker, and internet personality, and recommends his book, Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook. We hope that the drive and motivation you hear in his voice will spark something in your personal and/or professional life! Enjoy!
