Teaching is an art. It is an art that requires constant reflection, on going professional growth, and hours of practicing your craft. I have always believed that I learn the best when I tap into the expertise of my teacher colleagues. I love to have conversations with fellow teachers about what works best in their classroom, and how teachers improve their individual craft. This podcast was created to help spread that conversation. Ready, Set, Teach is a platform for educators, of all levels, to learn something new, have a conversation about best practice, and reflect on the best source of professional development; fellow teachers.
