Creating Welcoming Classroom Environments with Berit Gordon
How do we create a welcoming classroom environment during a pandemic? What about while teaching online, or in a blended approach? How do we stay happy and healthy through all of it?

Her new book is The Joyful Teacher: Strategies for Becoming the Teacher Every Student Deserves. In previous episodes, we've explored strategies from Berit's book, like creating classroom routines and rituals.
Today, Jaclyn and Berit dive into two more strategies: creating a classroom environment, and staying happy and healthy in a demanding job.

What an amazing treat to hear these amazing authors that I would only dream about seeing at a Professional Learning session.
Teachers don’t have time for fluff
This podcast spends so much time in self- congratulation and teacher praise it is absurd. Where is the content? Strategies? Resources? It is worse than an infomercial for Heinemann. Pure fluff. I listened to 2 episodes and got one piece of valuable information. Sorry, but I don’t have any more time for this.
Sound quality so bad! Can’t listen!
I want to listen to this podcast but the sound quality is so exceptionally bad it’s impossible. It’s not expensive to get a Yeti and make your podcast listenable!
