Today's guest, Jeffrey Pflaum, touches me in so many personal ways. First, he spent from 1968 to 2002 in New York City public schools, bringing one of the most innovative self-reflective music and writing programs, primarily concerned with writing, to the widely-diverse students in the public school in which he worked.
Second, he and I share a bit of a similar background in that you'll hear it in our voices and in the joy and excitement that we have when talking with one another. And third, as you'll hear, the man's heart just vibrates with love for life and love for children. I'm so excited today to be interviewing and working and dialoguing with Jeffrey Pflaum.
