Inspiring and Informative

I love listening to Teacher Transition. Every episode is packed with useful and relevant information for teachers interested in work opportunities outside of traditional teaching.

Helpful

I have found many of the discussions helpful to understand that I’m not “just” a teacher, but actually have desirable and marketable skills! The audio quality is good, and Ali’s voice is easy on the ears. Naturally, her paid program is mentioned often, which isn’t itself a bad thing, but may not be for everyone.
