010. It's a Beautiful Day in the Classroom
We LOVE Fred Rogers. We watched the amazing fiction/nonfiction combo of "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" and "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood." We changed our shoes and put on our cardigans to discuss the wisdom Mr. Rogers has for every teacher, and how we can bring his neighborhood right it into our classrooms.

004. We Heart Conferences
WE LOOOOOOOVE conferences! We are professional nerds, aka teachers. We love to learn new things, and what better place to learn than a teaching conference like GYVTO that has so much positive energy and exciting ideas? We attended Get Your Virtual Teach On, and we wanted to share some mind-bending takeaways from some of the amazing speakers at the conference, like Brandon Fleming, Hayward & Star Jean, Michelle Ferre, and Dave Burgess the pirate teacher.

003. Playing School
Did you ever “play school” over the summer break when you were a kid? Today we’re talking about how we’re still “playing school” on the Summers Off podcast. From playing school as little kids to having our own classrooms as adults, we have become life-long students. We know that when we stop wanting to learn new things, we don’t stand still, but actually go backward. We love conferences because we love teaching, and we love teaching because we love learning. It’s a circle, y’all.

Summers Off Trailer
This is the “Summers Off” podcast, the show for all of you August-to-May school-aholics, taking the summers off to rest, re-energize, and get up and do it all over again next year. We’re talking about teacher life inside and outside the classroom, and what it’s like to live as an educator all year round. It’s not just for teachers, but also paraprofessionals, administrators, and anyone who calls school their home away from home.
