Being a teacher is difficult, especially today. At times you may seem lost, or unsure of yourself. On other days you may just be exhausted, as spending your work week with a group of children can be tiring. Sometimes you just might not be sure how to handle teaching certain subjects or approaching certain situations within your classroom. A great way to learn more and to see the point of view of other teachers is to check out a few podcasts. Podcasts have become huge in recent years, and many teachers have taken it upon themselves to start their own shows in order to share teaching advice as well as just entertain their listeners with their crazy teaching stories. That being said, there are a myriad of podcasts about teaching out there, so here are just a few great recommendations.
