Must Listen Edupodcast

Hosts, John Martinez & John Staumont, build hope and foster innovation by showcasing difference makers in education along with unveiling their own discoveries in education from their lenses as principals out of California. They search for difference makers like themselves, and showcase them on this podcast, where one could easily get lost in its rich display of educational vignettes. Tune in to hear from principals, veteran teachers, novice teachers, school bus drivers, and I am wondering, “Who next?”
