Veteran LA Teacher ,

Insightful even for veteran teachers

I’ve been teaching language arts for 31 years, and these podcast are part of my personal professional development. I listen during my two hours at the gym (Brain Rules: We learn better when we are moving). Some new ideas and some old ideas that are articulated in new ways make these podcasts invaluable for my growth as a professional educator.
