Customer Reviews

TBoneStone ,

So glad I found this!

I’ve started having the teachers at my preschool listen and discuss!

AJBaguel ,

LOVE!!!

I think I listened to every podcast this summer before going back to work. Not only have I been listening, but I told my boss about this podcast and she had us listen to one episode and discuss. I feel I’m becoming a better teacher because of this podcast.
Despite funky sound issues on a few episodes, it’s worth listening every time.

Home Nurses ,

Fun and reflective

I really enjoy listening and reflecting on these podcasts!
