Description Welcome to #TeacherLife! This project was created to provide a space for educators to voice their passions, stories and struggles in the world of teaching. In doing so, I hope to create community, find ways for teachers to support one another, and instigate conversation and action to better the lives of teachers and, consequently, our educational system.

https://www.teacherlifepod.com... download (audio/mp4, 16.34Mb)

Description:

This first episode of #TeacherLife is a little different.

I sit down at my desk, alone with my microphone and thoughts, and share my own experience in education. This is the severely shortened version of my story - if I weren’t my bedtime, I could have gone on and on for much longer. But there is much more time and many more episodes for that later.

In this episode, I share my path into education, my two years of teaching kindergarten, and where I see myself going next. I hope you find some connection to my story.

Happy listening!
