My name is Vince Massara, I am a teacher, writer, and host of the Content Friends Podcast.
I am a certified, qualified, and practising high-school teacher who looks to play a small part in inspiring students and teachers at the middle and high school levels.
Finding ways to best prepare our students for the new-age workforce has become a passion of mine throughout my career. However, it wasn’t until I started my first business did all of the planets align.
I can honestly say that starting my own business changed my life. And I don’t just mean outside of the classroom. Inside the classroom, after starting my first business, I felt like I was more effective and better preparing my students with skills that are required for the modern workforce.
Now, alongside my teaching and my business, I host the Smart Edupreneur Podcast, where I am lucky enough to share the stories of teachers who are incorporating entrepreneurship into their lives and their classrooms.
The workforce is changing. With almost 50% of jobs being freelance, we need to re-think the skills we teach in the classroom.
These teachers who I chat with are leading a new wave of educators who are preparing themselves, and their students for the gig economy. Helping educators’ understand and use of these innovations for personal and professional use motivate me to keep learning.
I bring a creative, passionate, and energetic approach to teaching and learning to his classrooms and schools. Additionally, Chris is a collaborative-minded, forward-thinking, and problem solving professional which benefits the entire school community.
I also run The Content Friends, where I help business owners become an author and an authority in their industry.
I grew up in a small town in Victoria called Swan Hill, and am a proud graduate of MacKillop College, Swan Hill. Odds are you could see me on the local soccer field or in the music room.
Currently, I reside in Geelong (Vic) and teach in Melbourne’s western suburbs. I still love playing soccer and consider myself to be a somewhat knowledgeable sports fan. I love going to Carlton games, and one day I might even see them win. In the rest of my free time, I love being outdoors hiking or at the beach.
