Creating a dialogue about what it’s like to be a new teacher.

The Lounge Podcast

rookie-logo-podcastThe Lounge is a biweekly podcast brought to you by TheRookieTeacher[dot]ca.  Visit our blog to download the podcast and join the discussion.

Welcome to our podcast, we are teachers in our first few years of our careers. We’re here not to give all the answers, we don’t have them. Instead we are trying to create a dialogue and discussion about what it’s like to be a newer teacher and expand our experiences. We believe in the pursuit of life long learning, a message we try to instill in our students as well as ourselves.  A wise educator once said, “Take Chances, Make Mistakes and Get Messy.” (ǝןzzıɹɟ˙sɯ)

We are always looking for ideas, feedback, tips and tricks of the trade. Please comment below if you have any other tips that we can help share across cyberspace.

    It doesn’t surprise me in the least to find a high-quality online resource dedicated to the creation of a broader learning community with Natasha’s name attached to it. Andrew, I don’t know you – looking forward to the pleasure some day — but if you’re a friend of Ms. Dunn I know you to be a person of exceptional character.

    Congratulations on all that you have done and continue to do, both in terms of teaching excellence and social justice. I suspect you may have a challenge looming in the near future: what filter will you use to choose the corporate sponsors who are going to want to get a piece of this?
