Should We Stay or Should We Go?

Happy New Year Everyone!!
Jen and Kim welcome the new year with their winter break stories. (Kim gets to the bathroom just in time wearing her new badass boots in Nashville.) Jen talks about the history of teacher shortages. Giving teachers orchids or jeans passes isn’t enough of an incentive to stay. They introduce an upcoming new segment where they will be interviewing educators about major topics in education. They also give their opinion on why Peter Pan is an ass, and why Tinkerbell had unresolved rage issues.

Administrative Leadership Styles, a Zen Den and a Giant Flea

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-8i6ns-1149b55

Jen gets her mug before Kim, and Kim’s not taking it well. They discuss the efficacy of the Zen Den and teachers napping under a weighted blanket during the school day. It’s holiday theme time, and it’s never ok to encourage children to wear bells to school, under any circumstances. Jen tells us the disturbing history behind a famous nursery rhyme, and Kim tells the very twisted story of The Flea-the Italians do it again!
