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.
