I'd like to record some segments for the Games in Schools and Libraries podcast at BGG Con. If you know any teachers or librarians who would be interested in joining me to record, let me know.

What about former educators or husbands of soon-to-be librarians? laugh

You don't need to actually be a teacher or librarians. Anyone who has something of substance that teachers or librarians would benefit from hearing are welcome.

If you have something specific you'd like to talk about geekmail me with the details.

I'm technically not a teacher - a counselor with 5+ years of working within the educational/non-profit sector. Do I count?

I think the better question might be if there is anything specifically you would like us to talk about.

If I come up with a topic I know needs covering I can probably find someone to talk about it.


For BGG con I'd rather people come to me with ideas I haven't thought about

I'm an organic garden educator focused on fresh food engagement for low income elementary students. We use a bunch of simple party games in our after school programs to learn about fruits and veggies. I have some awesome success sites and some miserable failures to share of you're interested.

I've got a middle school game club with 10-16 students each year, only meets once every two weeks though. Play games set in antiquity, or homemade versions of popular ones I've rethemed as ancient.

You probably wouldn't have enough time, but Mega Civilization would be quite cool for that concept.

Crap, sorry I missed this. My wife is a librarian, and has run some games in her library before we moved down to Texas. We were at BGG.CON Sat and Sun.
