Valentine’s Gift: Confessions of the Pain, Joy, and Love of Teaching

From the Cool Cat Teacher Blog by Vicki Davis

Follow @coolcatteacher on Twitter

Today’s show is different. I share some stories of insults, struggles, mistakes, and joys of teaching. The hope is that you’ll be encouraged, not feel alone, and remember why we do this profession. These are my stories digging back many years in some cases of the things that have changed my view and made me a better teacher – even when they were hard. Teaching, your job is so important. I hope you have a Happy Valentine’s Day! (Note: This episode is a little longer than usual but it just didn’t feel right to cut it in half.)
