This podcast is my secret ingredient!

This podcast is my secret ingredient in my quest to teach better and do school differently. I live and work in a rural area where change is extra hard and it’s easy to feel alone in my efforts to try a new and radically different methodology. Korda's podcast gives me the courage and inspiration I need everyday, especially Season 3. Listening to all the other educators using the Korda methodology not only reminds me that I’m not alone, but also has allowed me to connect with educators around the world to ask them questions, share experiences and learn from them. Season 1 and 2 reinforce what I learned at Korda’s workshop, which is a must for every educator who wants to be better and is ready to learn how.
