Awesome Podcasts for Bilingual Educators
Hi! I'm a G/T Bilingual teacher (EC-6th), passionate about bilingual/dual language education and language learning.
Sometimes in the bilingual world you feel a bit alone , yes for those of you that are fortunate enough to have a bilingual teammate this might not resonate with you; but for those of us who are the only dual/bilingual teachers in our grade level, sometimes it feels lonely. That is when listening to a podcast helps, it helps you realize you are not alone and it helps you by strengthening your skills as a teacher. It is not only helpful but refreshing to hear other teachers answer the questions you have about bilingual education.
🚘 Listen on your way to school or on your way back home and let me know in the comment section if I missed one you like.
