Teacher Appreciation and Mental Health
I have never been motivated to write a review about any podcast or product before this. I was highly impacted by this conversation. Thank you for the length and depth of sharing among your guests. I have immediately implemented the concept of evaluating my to actions to ask is this self-soothing or self-care, and how will it affect my tomorrow? While it was Mr. Crespo who lead me to your podcast, the hosts will keep me coming back!

My favorite arts ed podcast!
I may be a bit biased, but I love this podcast. Since Matt and Laura started hosting, the quality has been incredible! It is meaningful to me to hear about the experiences of other arts educators and arts integration/STEAM educators. I highly recommend this!

I have really enjoyed these Podcasts! I am an international teacher and have been trying to connect with my school leadership about the importance of creating a community for the art teachers in our “family of schools” but have had little to no success over the past few years. I’ve really appreciated the boost of energy that I’ve received from listening to your program and becoming part of this community! Thank you!
