Welcome to the Holistic Teaching & Learning Podcast (HTLP)! This channel is a feature of the Holistic Teaching and Learning Center (HTLC).

A holistic approach to teaching ultimately is taking a step back and understanding that catering to the soul is most important. The pursuits of holistic education are compassion, wholeness, awe, wonder, and a sense of purpose. When you foster the soul of young students self-efficacy follows. When students believe that they are important and supported the world is thier oyster. The purpose of education is to bring out the best in every student and that starts with the soul.
