Inspiration and support for FCS and CTE teachers

I look forward to each episode of this podcast! Barbara is a trailblazer when it comes to supporting FCS educators. As an administrator who supports CTE teachers, I’ve loved listening to each episode as Barbara has carefully decided what content is current and needed. As a former classroom CTE teacher, I wished I would have had this podcast early on. Thank you so much for helping our programs and our teachers be supported and educated!

Enjoyable Experience for the Guest

As a guest on Barbara's podcast, I can tell you it was very enjoyable and conversational. The topics are at once informational, insightful, and practical.

While ideal for Family and Consumer Sciences teachers and faculty, these topics are also appropriate for and useful to parents and teachers in other disciplines.
