Welcome to the first episode of the Talk to Mee in the Car Education Podcast. Think of it like a quick 10-minute workout for your teaching practice: it’s like having your very own instructional coach in the palm of your hand!
Recorded in bumper-to-bumper traffic to and from my daily work as a high school instructional coach just outside of Washington D.C., this is where a brainstorm and a good old-fashioned brain dump collide to help educators hone their skills and become leaner, meaner, 21st century teaching machines. Join me for a new episode every Monday for a quick hitting 11(ish) minute blast of tips, tricks, and strategies to change the game in your classroom TODAY with high-energy, student-centered teaching that actually works.
Because one size fits all professional development simply doesn’t.
