Four teaching friends from across the country who've discovered that if you don't laugh you cry, and lose sight of your "why." Pour yourself a cup of coffee...or a glass of wine and join us as we talk shop, trash, and mull over our teaching lives. We promise, you'll laugh!


Episode 44 Summer Reads Series: Where The Crawdads Sing

Hey lovely listeners! We hope you're enjoying your summer as much as we are. Welcome to the second installment of We Teach So Hard's Summer Reads Series where we suggest pleasure-read books and hold book club discussions. This episode, our title is a recent bestseller, Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. This read is filled with lyrical language, and heartbreaking abandonment. It's a gorgeous coming-of-age story of survival, physical survival and emotional survival. Kya will break your heart. She broke ours, for sure. Delia Owens' writing is like a prose poem. Transcendent!

If you haven't read the book yet, then save this podcast episode for after. This is your only SPOILER ALERT!

This week, Deann is offering a beautiful companion resource for this book... JUST FOR YOU because you teach so hard! You can snag it here:

OR, you can check out her blog post about the book. It has some cool stuff in it!
