A statewide motivator
This podcast gives me hope for education. Rather than reading about what's happening in schools by non-educator policy makers, this podcast tells our story from the teacher and student point of a view. There are amazing teachers making a difference every day in the mitten state, and every episode proves this. Brad Wilson does a great job bringing new and interesting topics to light. I look forward to each new podcast.
This American Life + Michigan Classrooms
This podcast is not only a great example of storytelling, but a tremendously powerful way to hear about student and teacher success across the state of Michigan. It's fun to hear the small stories of teachers and students making a difference, and has given me a lot of ideas about how to help other teachers improve their craft.
