Passion at its finest
As an English major, finding this podcast has been so cool. My dream growing up was to become an English teacher, but after graduating with my masters in 2008, I hit the market at a horrible time. Pink slips were all anyone was talking about. To be able to now listen to the experience of others and get an inside look is really neat, and I thank you, Brian, for this great content!
Enjoying the first couple of episodes of your show. I look forward to hearing more.
Professional and Informative show.
Nice to see a show spreading the inspiration of one of the greatest professions: teaching. Professional and informative and a great podcast to share with those in the teaching profession to offer valuable insight. Look forward to the growth of the show!
