Essential for Preservice Teachers!

If you are a preservice teacher this podcast is essential! Dr. Sam has excellent tips to help you make the most of this time before having your own classroom. From interview tips, to student teaching 101, and pep talks this podcast always has entertaining and relevant information for preservice teachers. I look forward to hearing more episodes!

Incredibly helpful!

I love this podcast. I always find something useful in every single episode. Dr. Sam is so excited and hands on with preservice teachers! I suggest following her on Twitter as well bc she is always promoting great conversation. If you are a new or preservice teacher, this podcast is a fantastic option!

So encouraging

I love listening to this podcast even though this is year #2 in the classroom for me. I’m always taking away great advice, feeling encouraged, and most importantly to me, feeling connected. Teaching can feel really isolating at times but this helps so much.
