  • You take the tips you’ve gained from my lessons learned and you’ve spruced them up to fit your circumstances
  • You might not think you have anything spectacular to say, show or share with colleagues, but everyone has something to contribute if you’re willing to connect.
  • We are all different but we have one common thread that brings us together, developing our educator craft.
  • Instead of running a marathon, we are gonna run a few miles at a time.

Listener Comments:

  • It's helped me realize that maybe I'm not ready to change careers yet; I might have a purpose to keep teaching a bit longer.
  • All of the podcasts have given me something to think about and use in my career.
  • This podcast has helped me tremendously set boundaries as a teacher. The best advice I have received from this podcast has been to not worry about the things that are beyond my control. There has been a lot of uncertainty in my position recently and that has been helpful for dealing with that stress.
  • Seeing that I am not alone and that what I have learned I can make accommodations to use with my learners
  • Helpful little snippets to address those little annoyances and issues!!
  • Helped make me a better coach/educator.
  • I listen to be uplifted and reminded as to why I became a teacher in the first place. Thank you Gretchen for calling me, and reminding me, than I am ELITE. I have been empowered.
