Must Listen!

Jeff and Rae have a contagious rapport between each other. They do an excellent job discussing a wide variety of topics and issues that pertain to all audiences. As an educator and coach, I always find myself taking away key lessons and insights from each episode and the wide variety of guests that join in on the fun. As the title eludes, this is a must listen for all!

Amazing Teaching Content

I love to listen to the Teach Better Team podcast and read the valuable blog posts. There’s always something new to learn, even for veteran teachers. Besides, I appreciate to listen to fellow teachers from around the country about the struggles, pains, and joys of teaching.

Teach Better Podcast

Amazing chemistry. That’s why this podcast is a must listen. Rae and Jeff are very entertaining and educational. The Teach Better Team website should be in every educators toolbox.
