You are in for a treat as we're joined by special guest, Ms. M of @ms.m_closet, to tackle the world of buzzwords for teachers. From the latest teaching acronyms like STEM, PBIS, and RTI to the special terms that only teachers understand, like "differentiation" and "formative assessment", we're diving into the lingo that can make teaching feel like learning a new language. We also have some fun sharing our own hilarious experiences with buzzwords and ways we've tried to incorporate or exile them in our classrooms. To close out the show, we play a quick game of "Name the Acronym!" that will have you rolling with laughter! *Watch the full episode and more on our YouTube.* Subscribe to our newsletter!

Pigeon is a character on the Mike Tyson Mysteries cartoon. He is the LAST bird you would want around your children. Trust me, you should get Big Bird instead.
