Comedy

I love the Teachwell Teachers podcast because it never fails to make me laugh. With all the crazy going down in this country, I *need* to laugh. Thank you Dave and Dr. Didi, and please keep them coming. For context, the only other podcast I listen to is My Favorite Murder, also comedic.

Funny podcast

Mr. Nader was my favorite English teacher (Class of 96). This is a hilarious look at teaching & helpful outlook in understanding teaching methods. My son is a SPED student on the Autism spectrum, it is refreshing to me to hear the other side of teaching. Dr. Paula has a fresh take on teaching & relating to students. This is a very funny podcast & a front seat inside the teachers lounge. So, take notes because there will be a quiz.
