I really learned something!

I have been teaching for a long time, but I loved the way this podcast kind of shakes things up, clarifies terms you thought you knew, and gives you various perspectives in creative and interesting ways. This is not your usual format either. The short segments are listener friendly and engaging. The interviews are compelling, and at times surprising because you hear different opinions. The most surprising thing about this podcast is that it is not afraid to evaluate the newest trends and say what many educators are really thinking and feeling, as they navigate their way through being successful in this field. The journal segment really has me looking further into Hattie to learn more about my effectiveness as a teacher.

Not your average EdPod

Seamus and crew make an enjoyable and informative launch into all things US education. It’s divided up into different segments, which is so nice. The entire pod is like sitting in the workroom with your favorite likeminded coworkers and really geeking out on making education better. Keep up the great work!
