My favorite podcast these days
I’m so glad to have found this podcast. I’m a Venezuelan living in the US, heading to China in July with my husband and two girls for our first teaching job abroad! I started listening back in September when we had just decided to apply on SA. It’s so exciting to hear your stories and your guests’ tips and perspective on things. Thanks for the awesome work and please keep the stories coming! :)
P.S. Would love to hear about guests that have taught or currently teach in China, TCK’s, and/ or are raising families abroad please!
Great honest podcast about international schools
This is a great podcast for those who want to hear about international school teaching. There is honest, real dialogue. They are funny, entertaining, and share some great memories. Definitely follow this podcast.
We have had the privilege of meeting the Judds here in the Middle East and cannot say how great it has been. Matt is well known amongst the middle school kids as a favorite teacher and Stacy is so great with the elementary school kids. They are such down to earth people and make me laugh so hard everyone I get the chance to chat with them! We have twins as well so it’s been nice to share war stories! So glad this podcast was created to share the craziness but absolute wonder of being an expat overseas! I am so enjoying it!
