Stories Teachers Share – MindShift

Stories Teachers share is a podcast about what it’s like to be a teacher and what we can learn from them. It comes from the team at the wildly popular education blog MindShift, produced out of NPR member station KQED. Teaching is a deeply personal profession. Teachers give so much of themselves to their students, nurturing relationships and trust with students along the way. It’s those intangibles that don’t always show up on standardized tests and rarely get discussed in the media. Few people ever know the truth about what it’s really like to teach or what impact great teaching can have on someone’s life. A lot of those experiences are locked away in classrooms or become sentiments never shared with the ones who might need to hear it the most. Stories Teachers Share will not only paint a picture of the men and women spending more than six hours a day with our children, but will also help reveal how each of us is a teacher and a student at different times in our lives.

Uplifting stories

This podcast is a reminder of the many good teachers there are. Plus it provides funny stories and an overall insightful view of life in the world of educators. If you need a laugh or a heartwarming story this podcast is for you.

Teachers hear the darnedest things

I'm constantly thinking back to my school days and reevaluating what that experience was like. It's nice to hear the other side - what teachers thought. Some fun moments too like boys asking if certain smells go away and then come back. The puberty lady episode is good as is the puberty questions one.

A real education

Too often the conversation about education gets mired in abstraction. Hearing stories straight from the people trying to hold the line on real learning reminds us that people matter more than process.
