I love listening to Angela's wisdom in these podcasts. When I feel overwhelmed with teaching (duties, papers, meetings), I like to listen to "Truth for Teachers" to remind myself why I teach. Angela reminds me that I am in this to make a difference in kids' lives. I just can't get enough of this podcast! Thank you, Angela!

A podcast is essentially a talk radio show which you can listen to online or download to take with you wherever you go. I enjoy listening to podcasts while I’m driving, exercising, cooking, and cleaning. Podcasts are a great way to fill your mind with positive messages while doing otherwise mundane tasks. They also help you learn new ideas and connect with interesting people outside your own community without having to spend more time tied to a computer screen.
I created Truth for Teachers to provide a short weekly message of encouragement and inspiration for my fellow educators. A new episode is released each Sunday so you listen during your Monday morning commute, or any other time that’s convenient for you. You can learn more about me and podcast in the first episode, called What is Truth for Teachers?
Don't miss these episodes
My friend and coworker discovered this podcast and shared it with me. Since then my entire team listens to it weekly and discusses the topics at our meetings. There are many days when we all just need someone to tell us it's going to be ok, and Angela does this in a firm but kind way. Can't imagine my Monday morning commute without her.
Truth For Teachers FAQ

Where can I find show notes or a transcript of the recording?
Every Sunday, I feature the latest podcast episode on my blog.

When will Season 5 end?
I run two seasons of TfT a year with a 2-3 month break between seasons. It’s structured this way to make the workload more sustainable for me so I don’t burn out and can keep creating new episodes for many years to come. Season 5 will end in May 2017, and Season 6 will begin in August 2017.
