About

Ever feel like you're the only one going through a certain experience in your career? You're not alone. Join me, Fonz Mendoza, as I interview educators and creators about their EdTech life. The mission of this podcast is to amplify educator and creator voices. What does that mean? It means that we want to give a platform for educators and creators to share their stories, struggles, successes, and everything in between so that others can learn from them. I believe that by doing this we can help make the education and creator community stronger and more connected than ever before.
