Teaching, Reading & Learning: The Podcast elevates important contributions to the educational community, with the goal of inspiring teachers, informing practice, and celebrating people in the community who have influenced teaching and literacy to the betterment of children. The podcast features guests whose life stories are compelling and rich in ways that are instructive to us all.

Wow! Wow! Wow!
This is awesome-sauce! Thank you for providing so many avenues to pour into us as teachers and parents! The very first podcast is with Dr. Louisa Moats!
I was introduced to LETRS (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading & Spelling) by Dr. Moats in 2012, and I’ve been soaking up the “science of reading” ever since! Going through this training opened my eyes to a whole new world of reading instruction. Dr. Moats, THANK YOU for pioneering through all the ups and downs for all of us! Truly, your work paved a whole new way for us to follow step-by-step!
TRL, THANK YOU for providing this podcast! I am on the edge of my seat to see who’s next!
