Honestly, I just started listening to podcasts this summer to improve my practice. I wish I had started sooner! Keep in mind I listen to education related podcasts. These are amazing resources for teachers, by teachers. They range in topics from content specific to educational technology tools to best practices. Never stop learning, growing, and challenging yourself to be the best educator you can be for students.
