Very empowering!

I love listening to this playlist anytime I feel defeated. It gives me so many ideas to try and share with my colleagues.

I love this podcast when you get those episodes that offer serious teaching tips and information. Unfortunately, it is sometimes just a looooong commercial for someone trying to sell a book, or a bunch of people fan-girling over one another.
