Learning so much about education

I’m just a parent enthusiast here, hobbies include education and development (really isn’t everyone’s hobby education?) I love this podcast and I did splurge on a summit pass, ...because content. Love to use the conversation and tools to explore my little one’s world and find new ways to really dial in and connect with her. That is why and how she will learn, because we have a tight bond and I have tools to help guide and support her experience of planet Earth, as my own little VIP guest

Love ❤️

This podcast brings me so much joy on my morning runs! Love Deedee and Adam—they share amazing ideas and they’re just so much fun. (The only drawback is that I have to constantly stop to take notes!) 😁👏🏻
