Finally

Finally I have found a Christian Educator podcast that includes public school teachers. Love that she is tackling relevant struggles for today! I’m very thankful for this podcast and I will share with friends!

Fears series

I started listening to this podcast during the fears series, and it was amazing! Super helpful and solid ideas. This podcast has helped me survive a challenging year. 💕 My feedback is that more recent episodes feel like they are geared towards general teaching tips (which I could find anywhere) vs. a faith-perspective on the struggles of teaching (which is why I come here). There are also a lot more plugs for products and ads. I also wish the lower elementary perspective had more coverage. It’s a different world in the primary grades. 😂

Encouraged and given workable ideas!

Every time I listen to a podcast with Linda I am encouraged to pray for my students and believe in his power to work in my classroom for learning and building skills that with bring fruit in my students. I also walk away with at least one action I can try and implement and have seen work in my classroom. I love it!
