What teachers are saying

This is what I've been looking for- the blend of actionable personal development strategies that truly support our growth as teachers and humans. The content may be geared for teachers, though anyone looking to improve their relationships and work habits should listen. I wish there were 6 stars. I ❤️ this podcast!

Wise and comforting. I’m so happy I stumbled on this podcast. Teaching is challenging in even the best circumstances. Now...it’s crazy! Angela is calm, reasonable, encouraging, even prophetic. We need her voice and more like it.

Angela Watson makes teachers better. Period. Listening to Angela Watson's passionate and productive words is as meaningful as it is transformative. She helps teachers deal with the day-to-day, but is also unafraid to jump in and talk about the big issues dominating our attentions and minds. I'm a fan of all she puts out there.

Real, inspirational, justice centered thoughts on teaching. Thank you for the work you’re doing, Angela. As a BIPOC educator in a predominately white city and school... your words, ideas and support mean the world and help me keep doing this work even when I feel as though I’ve hit a wall. We appreciate you!!

What teachers are saying

Excellent podcast for educators! I am a big fan of Angela. She was in the trenches for years as an elementary school teacher and brings that perspective into every episode. Angela shares her passion and enthusiasm for teachers. I love her advice and take aways. She truly cares about the whole the teacher... body, mind, and spirit. This podcast is always uplifting and inspiring!

Angela changed my life years ago with the 40 Hour Teacher Work Week Club! My kids even recognized her voice. Now I look forward to her weekly podcasts of inspiration to help me reframe my workweek! Thank you!!!

What teachers are saying

Angela is practical, inspiring, and knowledgable. As a middle school ESOL teacher, I’m often wary of general education/teaching strategies. But, Angela Watson is amazing. Her strategies work. They are applicable to my classroom. She is honest in how hard teaching is and practical because she does come up with ways to streamline the work.
