Teacher Appreciation: Teachers Thank Teachers for Their Inspiration

The unsung heroes and influencers of today’s teachers are the teachers from their own school years. Chances are, there was a teacher along the way whose care, creativity, humor, or persistence inspired them in some way and made them see teaching as a great option.

Listen in to the podcast above (or read the transcript below) to find out what these teachers had to say to the teachers who inspired them.
