Teachers rock! I can say that with absolute authority because I have taught many, many children to read. I especially loved teaching children with dyslexia to read, and I taught children with ASD and ADHD and EAL children. I have also assisted teachers in the classroom and I know how creative and intelligent and thoughtful and cutting-edge they are!
And, if your teacher has given you this podcast to listen to, then they really are the bomb!!! This is the page where I give your teacher a few ideas for the podcasts, though they may have plenty of ideas of their own!
