Real educators talking about solutions

I love that this podcast is always bringing on educators and leaders who are in schools and speaking from experience.

I wish this had existed while I was still teaching!

Each episode has so much great info, I would have stayed in education if I had a program like this to work with.

Episode 61 very helpful

I’m at the point in fully implementing MCP and was getting stuck. This episode got me unstuck.
