A big old dose of positivity is just what the doctor ordered
Everything that Monica says speaks not only to my teacher mind but also to my soul as an educator. Her positivity in spite of the difficulties of this year inspires me to keep on pushing and loving my kiddos. The wisdom she speaks through this podcast is so refreshing. Her laugh makes you feel like a friend. Teachers, if you are struggling this year or just need a friendly reminder of why you truly do love being a teacher, look no farther that this podcast. You will walk away with encouragement and ideas you can use immediately. Since I started applying Monica’s simple tips, I feel like I am falling in love with the art of teaching all over again after 20 years in the classroom.
Simply said: Monica is All That!
I stumbled upon Monica on IG and instantly became a fan. You could even say I am a super fan.
Monica is a breath of fresh air in education. She’s real. She’s down to earth. She actually gets it and isn’t just blowing smoke at teachers. Her content is positive! Her ideas are doable and so stinking smart! Listening to the podcast I feel myself saying “yes!” And “preach it!” She loves her job and her joy spills from the pages in her books, the screen on my phone, and fills my ears. She’s all that goodness and joy that sometimes feels like it is missing in education! She reminds teachers to dig deep and find the joy each day and cheers them on as they do!
Jolt of energy I always need!
Thank you for your passion Monica! I love your energy and your ability to spin any situation into the positive. Love this podcast because it gives us a quick look at small ways we can inject some “joy juice” into the sometimes dreary world of education. I am teaching first grade in a new school and sometimes I’m drowning in the doldrums. So glad I found this treasure because it puts a smile on my face!
