    Have a positive impact on as many people as you can with Dr. Dennis McElroy E53

    Today on the EduMagic podcast I have with me, Dr. Dennis McElroy. I love how back when Dennis was an undergrad he wrote a professional goal stating, "I want to have a positive impact on as many people as I can." Little did he know, that he would work his entire teaching career doing just that! During this interview, he shares his teaching story, tips for future teachers regarding a professional digital presence and professional learning network. He goes onto share the importance of getting out of your comfort zone and exploring new ways to engage as a professional educator. I know that you are going to enjoy this episode!

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.
