Love this Podcast

I have listened to all of Jessica’s podcasts about 3 times each. She is like listening to a friend. She’ll say something, and I’ll randomly nod my head in agreement. She is incredibly genuine. I’m so excited she is BACK!

A breath of fresh air

In this current toxic teacher environment, Jessica’s podcast is a breath of happy and healthy fresh air. I am a 28-year veteran of teaching, this year serving in the remote teacher trenches. That said, Jessica has a bouncy-yet-realistic vibe that speaks to me, particularly during this pandemic. I encourage you to listen!

Enjoyable and educational

Jessica offers an entertaining and informative podcast that is focused not solely on the classroom but on the overall well-being of teachers. I appreciate her helpful takes on everything from student teaching to money.
