An uplifting podcast focusing on the goodness in education!

I’m incredibly thankful I’ve connected with Jackie and her podcast. Each story has its unique journey, but all are encouraging and beautiful. Jackie’s guests are inspiring and I’m so excited to see how this podcast impacts the future of education.

Structured and Insightful Storytelling

I appreciate how each episode contains four sections. This framework builds familiarity for the listener and keeps the show focused. An additional point on the functionality is that the audio quality is clear, and you can tell that the author of the podcast puts in the time to edit the shows to make them precise and to the point. I listen to many podcasts, which means the time I spend listening really needs to offer interesting information that doesn’t waste my time. 🙂 Moving from functionality to content, the stories really capture your attention. I can only guess that the guests feel pretty fantastic to be able to share their insights.

We are at a point in the field of education where we need to acknowledge and validate our educators more than ever. We must find ways to give our teachers, administrators, and support staff voice and agency, especially after the pandemic. The Teacher Story podcast does this so well.
