About The Podcast

There aren’t many podcasts for a teacher preparation audience—that’s why we created The Teacher Education Podcast. It’s a space to share important stories and research across the country. We discuss topics like preparing candidates for certification, strategies fo improving teacher retention, tips for supervisors, and the latest research on teaching methodologies. 

Each episode includes a pithy, in-depth interview with a teacher preparation professional. We know you’re busy, so we try to keep our podcasts under 20 minutes. It’s the perfect length for your work commute or work-out session.

The Teacher Education Podcast is presented by GoReact.
