This podcast invaluable to current and aspiring educators. I typically listen during my commute to work, but there are so many gems that I often listen again once I get home so that I can take notes. Thank you for doing the work!
Depression is real! I could relate to each of the ladies on the panel. I could not press the subscribe button fast enough after listening to the podcast....lol! Keep up the great work! I also shared it with some of my teacher friends.
What a fun podcast!
I found this podcast by listening to the interview with Joe Dombrowski (@MrDTimes3 on Social Media) who is absolutely amazing! The interview was fascinating when you think about social media in the classroom. While the interview focused on him and his fondness for teaching and social media, etc., in the classroom, I'm interested to see what else the podcast shares! Definitely subscribing!
