Chiara Monticelli Dabney ,

The best podcast for active WL teachers!

La maestra Loca, aka Annabelle, brightens up my day with her enthusiasm and authentic self. I listen to her any time I need a good idea or a pick-me-up. I recommend her podcast to all the WL - and as a matter of fact non WL teachers - that are and want a more energetic and fun classroom!

Practical Podcast

I love to listen to podcasts while I drive or do mindless tasks at home. La Maestra Loca’s podcast is jam packed with information and ideas that teachers can use in their classrooms the next day, and they are less than 20 minutes long! Thanks Annabelle!

I’m so grateful for you

Gracias por tu increíble trabajo, me encanta tu podcast!!
