Thank you for sharing your heart on this podcast and being 100% real. I feel like you are here just chatting with me having a coffee chat 💜 You’re amazing sister, don’t stop!
Thank you for doing this podcast. It is awesome and will help many teachers like me. This will be my sixth year teaching but I’m trying to find a new job in the public sector, which means that it will be my first year all over again and I do thank you for helping me to get through. Muchas gracias 😊
Although I consider myself almost veteran teacher (only 6 years), I feel that there is always so much more room to grow and I think this podcast will support me in that! I’m excited to hear more about teaching tips! I will definitely share this with my mentee as well!
