  1. This is such a cool idea, I love it! Great opportunity for beginning and experienced teachers alike to get help targeted to specific concerns.

    • Hey LS. Thanks so much! The next time you’re wondering about something or have any kind of question, please call in!! The calls have been slow to get started so far. Have a great weekend!

    Hi, Jennifer,
    I really loved this episode because it hit some important topics for me. I would love for you to do a whole episode on differentiation – perhaps like your 15 minutes on think-pair-share that I found incredibly motivating.
    I teach English to young adults, from 18 and up, and would love to hear some more advice on differentiation. My students are very different: from the academically challenged, the very intelligent, the dyslexic students, the un-motivated students to the highly motivated ones.
    I’m a big fan and hope you continue doing the great job you do.

    • Hey Margit! I am thinking about doing a book study this summer on differentiation and am hoping to interview the author for a podcast episode. Keep an eye out for that!
