Cness ,

Love it!

Nice, easy listen. Jordan and Mark are hilarious and really honest about the teaching profession, whilst still being positive about their roles. As a teacher who is considering leaving my role, it is so nice to hear why you both love your jobs. Keep up the good work and more episodes please 😀
