The Semicolon and The Nerdy Teacher

I'm flying solo on this shorter podcast. I wanted to share some thoughts on mental health and education.

It was great chatting with Amber Teamann. She is an elementary assistant principal and all around awesome human being.

Relationships with students and teachers are things that admins are constantly working on and Amber offers some great insight on how that works. If you have wondered what goes on in an admin's brain, this is the podcast episode for you.


Season 3 Episode 2: Starr Sackstein

This week's #NerdyCast episode is all about grades. This was a very interesting conversation that made me really think about grading practices and what it is that all teachers are doing when it comes to assessment. The best question of the night was simply, "What is an A?".
