    Episode 158 - A Love Letter to Title I Teachers

    Episode 158 - A Love Letter to Title I Teachers

    Coronavirus definitely brought out some of the inequities in teaching. Many teachers at Title I schools found their students could not connect or were absent from online learning. Yet, you DO make a difference, and that’s why this love letter is devoted to you.

Good podcast!

I really enjoy this podcast- James is very quick and to the point and he fits in a lot of information in a short amount of time. Worth a listen if you’re a band director.

Choir, etc.?

Since this is called the music Ed podcast, have you considered expanding to other aspects of music Ed? Maybe bringing on folks that can speak to that?

Great for improving your skills and band program

I've listened to about 10 of these so far, and I have gotten so many wonderful ideas that are helping me to improve my vision, my band program, and my daily skills. I am going to keep listening to all of them! James shares great ideas (which he admits have all been stolen from other band directors) in a very succinct manner, and has fantastic guest interviews as well.
