Wife Teacher Mommy: The Podcast
Okay, okay, this is my teacher podcast but I do have to say, it is my favorite! I have so much fun talking to all of my guests and sharing my life experiences with fellow teachers and homeschool parents.
Being an educator is beyond a full-time job. Whether you’re a teacher or a homeschool parent, the everyday to-do list is endless. Between lesson planning, grading, meetings, and actually teaching, it probably feels impossible to show up for your students without dropping the ball in other areas of your life.
Wife Teacher Mommy: The Podcast is the show that will bring you the teacher tips, practical strategies, and inspiration that you need to relieve the stress and overwhelm of your day-to-day.
Listen to hear me and my guests cheer you on and help you thrive as a wife, teacher, and mommy. Because with a little support and community, you can do it all!
Plus, did you know that Wife Teacher Mommy Club members get BONUS podcasts for teachers? Be sure to join the waitlist to join the club to get ALL the content.

The Social Studies Podcast
From Apple Podcasts: “Comedians Joe Dombrowski (former elementary school teacher) and co-host Gaspare Randazzo (current high school teacher) discuss the chaotic life in and out of the classroom, the nuances of parenting toddlers, and pretty much all things millennial. Each episode is different. Sometimes they’ll bring you a Hollywood guest such as comedian Anjelah Reyes-Johnson or renowned School Psychologist Dr.Jody Carrington. Sometimes they might read emails from fans, riffing on their unbelievable, real-life, classroom stories. Other times they might argue over the most realistic conspiracy theories. You never know!”
Gaspare was our keynote speaker at our 2022 Winter Educate & Rejuvenate. I got the chance to interview him on Wife Teacher Mommy: The Podcast.
