On episode THIRTY-ONE of Let the Bird Fly! Mike and Peter stage a coup, ousting Wade, and installing themselves as permanent dictators of the podcast. Actually, Wade was just out-of-town, so for the first time you’ll get to listen to a Wadeless episode of Let the Bird Fly! (enjoy!).

In Wade’s absence, Mike takes the reigns as we discuss Grace in the Classroom. We welcome Mike’s wonderful wife, Amanda Berg, to assist in this discussion. In fact, this topic sprang up from a conversation that she started with Mike about some of the challenges (and necessity) of applying grace and not just law in the classroom setting. Amanda has been a teacher for over 15 years, standing in front of every grade from preschool through twelfth grade. Her focus has been early childhood education and she’s served in both urban and rural settings, which provides her with a unique perspective. Moreover, she’s been able to put up with Mike for a long time and doesn’t even complain about it too much (talk about a saint!). We’re grateful to Amanda for coming on the podcast to give us her unique perspective and for putting up with Mike for all these years.
