Episode 46: Joanne “Oma” Pfeiffer

Lessons from Oma

hosted by: Jessica Pfeiffer & Steve Graner

About our guest:

In today’s episode we connect with my favorite guest, ever. My mom. (Yes, I’m biased). Oma, began teaching in 1958 and she sits down with us and shares some of her biggest lessons learned as an educator. She talks about the importance of having a holistic lens and reflects on how she leaned into her teaching community for creativity and inspiration. 

Joanne Pfeiffer, also known as Oma, is a retired college professor. Joanne has her Masters in Education, from Marquette University, and taught at Grandview College, in Des Moines, Iowa, for over 40 years. She is currently a Healing Touch Practitioner, working in Hospice facilities. Besides all this, her greatest accomplishment is raising Pfeiffer, and not messing her up too bad, kidding…but seriously.
