The Youth Frontiers' Podcast, The Teachers' Lounge, brings us into a conversation about how we can create school communities where our kids can thrive - not just academically, but socially and emotionally as well. Host Sally Koering sits down with educators, artists, actors, researchers–to have casual conversations that help energize and sustain teachers in their work to create positive school communities. As they say: However the teachers' lounge goes, so goes the school community. So, come join us as we chat in The Teachers' Lounge - sharing insights, challenges, triumphs and journeys–and enriching teachers in the incredible adventure of teaching.
