What's Our Story?

When I approached Melissa with the idea for this podcast, I knew she would be the perfect yin to my yang. She has such a calming, positive presence and energy about her, and more importantly, is someone who I could talk to for hours about education scientific research, strategy, and support. In short, she's smart, and I wanted to get to know her more! We instantly connected as friends and colleagues. 


In our first year of implementation of Wit & Wisdom, Melissa and I were tagged with becoming experts on grade 8 modules and recording videos to unpack the Module Study Protocol, Focusing Question Protocol, and Lesson Analysis Protocol (also known as lesson study). While the first videos left much to be desired (lots of stumbling over our words!), after lots of practice and perseverance, we found that we loved supporting teachers, coaches, and leaders virtually... and thus, the idea for the podcast Melissa and Lori Love Literacy was born. 


I'm beyond grateful for Melissa for jumping into this endeavor, and for all of our incredible guests who drop serious knowledge on the podcast audience! There are so many #micdrop moments where we learn and grow as educators together. But, none of this would be possible if it weren't for you, our listeners. Thank you teachers, coaches, leaders, experts, researchers, journalists, and parents! You truly are the very best. 


If you listen and love this podcast, it would make our hearts burst with happiness if you gave us a FIVE STAR review! Share with your friends, family, fellow educators... and tag us in social media posts! We can't wait to continue this journey with you.
