Think back to your favorite elementary school teacher. Did they inspire you? Make you feel heard? Connect with you daily? As elementary guides, we should strive to be these kinds of teachers, the ones who inspire our students to be curious about the world around them.

In this episode, we explain what it means to be a truly inspirational elementary guide. We share what different teaching styles look like in the classroom and how to know what kind of teacher you are. Plus, we share a list of guidelines you can use to ensure you’re teaching to your fullest potential.
