Welcome to the Something to Talk About blog page! Here, you’ll find an archive of each mini podcast and blog featured in this series created to give teachers a space to voice their ideas. Each Something to Talk About piece features practical teacher-to-teacher ideas, strategies, and tips that are rooted in deeply held beliefs. This page will be updated regularly, so please keep coming back for more ideas!
