@astrostephenson ,

Educators should listen!

There is just so much value in the variety of guests that Jeff and Rae have on...it’s like professional development every time I listen. I plug it into my car for my daily commute to school and I arrive with a freshness and a mindset that sets me up for a good day in the classroom. Highly recommend!

Chey and Pav ,

Such relevant conversation!

We love listening to the Teach Better Talk podcast for the amazing conversations with guests, and the relevant topics that cover the things we all need to know and grow at as teachers! Thanks for the great information!
