PodStudy Discussion

What inspired you to start your podcast and what keeps you inspired as you approach the start of year 3?


Your first show was in July 2019 and your three ways to incorporate mindfulness as educators were:

  • Pay attention and create an awareness of how you want to feel in the classroom
  • Watch and be aware of your connections Beyond academics
  • Practice self-care

Has this advice changed since then? If so, how? How can we update it for the 2020/21 school year? 


Here on PPD we like to assign homework, it’s how we keep the learning going. Which of your episodes would you recommend as optional homework/continued learning?


What is your preferred form of PD to get or give?
