    We have reached the end of Season 2 and that means this is our 40th episode! To close out the season here around the Thanksgiving break, Katie and I wanted to talk a bit about some of our favorite tips and tricks that have come from the previous episodes over the last two seasons! We’ve had a lot of great topics and fantastic people on, but just in case there was something mentioned before that you may have forgotten about, we want to bring it back into the light so you can use it through the rest of the school year!

So excited about this podcast. There aren’t many podcasts out there by tech coaches for tech coaches! Every episode gets me recharged for my role. At the end of each episode they go over top tips and I always get so many great take aways! Highly recommend for anyone currently coaching or thinking about coaching.
