Meggie and the teapot ,

Out of this World!

I was very impressed with this educational podcast. I love to use it as an early finisher task and later created it to be a whole group reward. It’s super creative and engaging. I soon had kiddos doing their own engagement after school. My kids love it and it blows the parents away with all of the take aways.

So thankful

I started working as a TA last school year and before the new school year started I was asked to teach STEM! Of course I said yes! It’s been a fun exciting journey but it’s all new territory. I’m so thankful I stumbled across this podcast and all the wonderful things in her TPT store! Total lifesaver!! 10 out of 10 recommend not only for new STEM teachers but even the seasoned ones!💛

Naomi is a lifesaver!

The STEM teacher job opportunity was sprung on me out of the blue at the end of last school year, and although I was excited to try something new, I was feeling very lost and overwhelmed as I had no idea where to even begin. I stumbled upon Naomi’s podcast, and I am so glad I did! She has a great way of connecting with her listeners and making you feel less stressed and more confident. Thank you, Naomi, for creating this podcast and helping guide all of us to the amazing STEM world!
