Looking for new education podcasts to expand your repertoire? Look no further! This post is dedicated to all the rising podcasters out there delivering solid information and entertainment to educators that you haven't seen on other "top charts."
As I enter my tenth year in education, I never cease to be amazed by the quantity of meaningful content created by teachers and students all over the country. I have seen beautiful student poetry and art in school hallways. I have laughed as a teacher read journal entries to me from her first year teaching diary. I have also seen a teacher who was struggling in the classroom come alive when delivering a poem about his identity.
These moments are opportunities that allow you to elevate your voice, share your perspectives, and inspire others. One way to do that is through self-publishing.

I do believe that everybody is an educator. It’s something that's part of what everyone is doing in some capacity. When you experience the classroom, not only do you understand what some of the needs are and how important the work is, but you also get a sense of humility of like, “You know what?
