Good for new teachers
This podcasts covers many important topics. This would be great for new teachers to listen to. I love that she is a Christian and talks a little bit about that, but her advice is useful to everyone regardless of their beliefs. She also has a very pleasant voice.
Speaks to my teacher heart
As a public school teacher, I so appreciate Linda and her wonderful ideas for bringing my faith quietly in the classroom through my thoughts and actions. She is the only Christian teacher voice I have that combines faith and the classroom. She has been such an encouragement during COVID and I think my favorite episode ever was her recent one on racial justice with her interview. She gives just what teachers need and I’m so grateful to her!
Encouraging, meaningful and relevant
I have often felt conflicted as a Christian and music teacher in a public school system. I have also struggled with classroom management and finding a healthy balance between my roles as a Jesus follower, wife, mother, musician and teacher. I so appreciate how this podcast and the teachings from this group have helped me stay grounded in what is most important in every area of my life. Looking forward to greater transformation in my ability to be effective in all that I do.
