In this episode of Teacher Voice: The Podcast, we contemplate compassion: for our students, for our classrooms, for each other and for ourselves.

Take a walk in nature with biology teacher Kirstin Milks and her family to hear how this is an act of compassion. Listen to special education teacher Dan Bianchini and the way he sees the whole student and how schools need to address students’ basic needs before learning can occur. Woven into this podcast, we hear from biology teacher Jamie Melton about the many small moments where she finds compassion for herself.

To hear more about how we find compassion for ourselves and extend it to others, listen to the podcast on our website.
