Angela’s podcast is my motivation each week! She has not forgotten what it’s like to be in the classroom. Every teacher will appreciate her words of encouragement.


Angela truly understands teaching. She does not deny the harsh realities and her uplifting thoughts and advice reflect that, and help remind me why I love this field so much. An honest focus on issues that are important in education.
