The Edvice Podcast

Steven Bauer

The Edvice podcast is a candid, yet research-based conversation with the purpose of providing advice and guidance to those interested in education. Whether you are an aspiring educator or a seasoned veteran, The Edvice Podcast will try to help in any way possible. We are in no way self-proclaimed "experts". However, we are educators looking to become the most efficient teachers possible using a "student-centered" approach and conversing with other professionals. Our podcasts will cover topics such as organization, time management, gossip in the workplace, and any others you wish to submit for review. Your input is extremely valuable and will help facilitate many discussions we have. We look forward to hearing from you and enjoy the show! read less
