This episode is a great one not just for new teachers, but for anyone who works with people (basically everyone then…) In this episode, The Ed Narrative talks with Jennifer about her work as a voice coach (see her blog for more information) the ins and outs of self-advocating, and speaking up when something is not right.

Praise for Jennifer
“Jennifer has so squarely hit the mark with our teacher-leaders that she is one of the few presenters that they are always requesting when professional development is the question. Here at the University of Chicago, this acclaim and recognition does not come easily! Jennifer has a way of presenting information that gets quickly to the heart of the matter. Her ability to read the true needs of the group, regardless of the original focus, has made her a favorite among the faculty here at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools.”
