Rae Hughart Revisited

Image
When we started this podcast, one of the guests we both knew we needed to have on the podcast was Rae Hughart. In this look back at Episode 5 of the Learning Through Leading Podcast, Rae talks with us about her journey from brand new teacher to classroom innovator, as well as some of the new projects she was working on back then. If you follow Rae on social media, you also know that she has another new project in the works, too. Rae has written a book, called Teachers Deserve It!, with Adam Welcome. While we eagerly await the release of that book’s release, we hope you enjoy this look back with our first interview with Rae Hughart!
