Welcome to the teacher's pep rally. We often find ourselves having so many conversations about work and the education system that we thought it might be something you want to talk about too. Sometimes we peak behind the curtain to reveal the hard truths and struggles but this space is mostly to lift each other up, collaborate, and celebrate. So put on your spirit wear and grab a bleacher. Let's talk about life and learning.
Teacher's Pep Rally | Performing Arts | Drama
What a pleasure to sit down with some of Erin's past students who are majoring in performing arts. Listen to Miko Harper, Cameron Frostbaum, and Carolyn Friedman as we discuss the magic of telling stories and the frustration of trying to keep the show alive. Now more than ever, we must support the arts and our artists. We left a ghost light on, so grab a bleacher. Let's talk about life and learning.
Teacher's Pep Rally | Gratitude | Thanksgiving | Teachers
We talk about the meaning behind the word gratitude and that it is not just about being thankful in the moment, but it also about the readiness of being thankful or returning kindness. Now more than ever, we can use a little more gratitude and truly find time to recognize the small gifts in our daily lives. This is a short but sweet episode on the Teacher's Pep Rally.
Teacher's Pep Rally |When We Were Kids in School | Sharing Stories | Making Student Connections
When was the last time you thought about your experience with school? Fred, Leticia, Pete, and Erin share some stories about their childhood and find some sweet memories. We learn that not all of us were angels and sometimes got into trouble...like kids do. We thank some of our most influential teachers and continue to remember the important role we play in our students' lives. Let's talk about life and learning.
Teacher's Pep Rally | Special Halloween Edition | Find Time for Some Fun

Let's talk about life and learning (insert maniacal laugh).
Teacher's Pep Rally | Teaching | Education | Digital Citizens
October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, so we invited our friend Marc Gonzalez who is a threat hunter and cybersecurity advisor to the Teacher's Pep Rally. We think you might be surprised to learn about the good habits we are not making to protect ourselves. We worry about financial security so why not cybersecurity? Let's be better with our cyber hygiene and model those good habits to our students. Grab a bleacher and worry less about being hacked with tips from an information security officer.
Teacher's Pep Rally |A Conversation About Mental Health | Crystal Steers | Chasing Happiness
Now, maybe more than ever, we must find ways to check in with our mental status and take steps to ensure we are taking time for self care. We had such an amazing and eye opening conversation with the one and only Crystal Steers of Chasing Happiness. Whether you are an educator or not, she provides us all with tips to creating space for joy in our lives. Grab a bleacher because this is going to be a great discussion for everyone on the Teacher's Pep Rally.

Be okay with being okay
With the new challenges facing every type of educator this year, this podcast gives some much needed support. A lot about school has changed, and it’s okay. You won’t have lessons work like they should, and that’s okay. You probably won’t be perfect, and that’s OKAY! It was the pep rally I needed before embarking on this new school year. Since everything seems to be going virtual this year, why not add a virtual support group to your roster?
