There are over 3 million full-time teachers in the United States. Add in part-time teachers, support staff, administrators, and board members, and you have a lot of people who have dedicated their lives to educate the lives of others. We believe in providing a platform where educators can gather to share, learn, and encourage others. Because at the end of the day, we are all Anchored in Education.
Anchored in Hiatus
I started this podcast 73 episodes ago with a main goal of providing on high-quality episodes. Due to the circumstances surrounding the global pandemic and trying to navigate the reopening of schools, I feel that pushing on right now with Anchored in Education only jeopardizes the quality for my listeners. Not willing to do that, I am putting this podcast in hiatus until proper time can be given. It is not a goodbye; it is an until next time.

In today's episode, we talk about standards, assessment, how to best support educators, and of course, remote learning.
The 411 on SLPs with Kelly Gosch
Speech Language Pathologists are simply rock stars in the world of education. So why is it we have such a struggle in including them in planning for the needs of students?

She gives us the down low that speech services are much, much more than working on articulation disorders. Their work is truly amazing.
Knee-Jerk vs. Wishy-Washy
We've all been there. We've either made a snap decision (knee-jerk) or hesitated to make the decision at all (wishy-washy). But why do we do this? Well, of course, there is research behind it. Follow me on an adventure of decision making as I use examples and hypotheticals both in and out of education. Of course, we explore how to make better decisions using a simple model to test out the decisions we've made.

Getting It "Right" For Every Student with Dr. Ken Wallace
How many times have students heard that they need to be preparing for college when they are in high school? True statement: College is not for everyone.
