When Lori approached Melissa with the idea for this podcast, she knew she would be the perfect yin to her yang. Melissa has a calming, positive presence and energy about her, but more importantly, is an incredible thought-partner. Lori is full of energy and creative ideas! We instantly connected as friends and colleagues.
In our first year of implementation of Wit & Wisdom ELA, we were tagged with becoming experts on the grade 8 modules and recording videos to model preparing to teach the curriculum using protocols. While our 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.
We are beyond grateful to each other for jumping into this endeavor, and for all of our incredible guests who drop serious knowledge on our 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 (our Literacy Lovers!). Thank you teachers, coaches, leaders, experts, researchers, journalists, and parents! You truly are the very best.
If you love our podcast, it would make our hearts burst with happiness if you gave us a FIVE STAR review and subscribed on your favorite app! Be sure to share with fellow educators... and tag us in social media posts! We can't wait to keep learning together.
