Teaching strategies, classroom management, education reform, educational technology — if it has something to do with teaching, we’re talking about it. On the podcast, I interview educators, students, administrators and parents about the psychological and social dynamics of school, trade secrets, and other juicy things you’ll never learn in a textbook. Other episodes feature me on my own, offering advice on ways to make your teaching more effective and more fun.
What iTunes reviewers are saying:
Best podcast for teachers ever!
I have been listening to this podcast for the last year and I have never been disappointed. Every single episode has some takeaway that informs and empowers my teaching. Now that I coach new teachers, I find a multitude of tools and resources to point them towards. Her podcasts are clear, concise, and well thought out. You get more bang for your listening buck. I love listening to them on my way to and from classrooms.
Better than school!!
This is such an incredible resource. I just discovered and am downloading episodes from the past too. I’m working on my masters in special ed, don’t have any real classroom experience and I have learned so freakin much in this podcast. The resources are incredible and I’m so inspired. Best use of time regarding professional development as far as I’m concerned.
She gets what it’s like!
Jennifer Gonzalez gets it. She knows the things I need to hear that help me work smarter and ultimately be a better educator. Even when I don’t think a particular podcast will be very pertinent to my role as a 6th grade reading and social studies teacher, I always come away with useful information. I’m hooked.
My new favorite place for podcasting.
I have found every one of the Cult of Pedagogy podcasts intriguing. Jennifer Gonzalez has a gentle, natural and compelling interviewing style that engages the listener immediately. Plus, every one of her topics is relevant to what I want to know about education. Even though I teach at the primary level, I still listen to every podcast with rapt attention. First rate!! I wish I could give it 10 stars.
I have no formal training in education, yet I find myself teaching. I teach college classes for both traditional students and adults. I teach a 4th, 5th & 6th grade Language Arts co-op class for a local homeschool group. And, I homeschool my three boys in grades 5, 3 and K. So many of these podcasts have inspired me as I search for ways to improve my (very varied) teaching. Jennifer has a refreshing, relaxed, and real style that is easy to listen to in the 20 minutes I have free. Who am I kidding? I don’t have any free time, but I do enjoy listening while I walk, fold laundry, wash dishes, or make dinner. I love that there are additional resources on her website as well as YouTube videos and Pinterest boards. This teacher thanks you!!
