    Important Content!

    Quick and Informative
    Great information and easily consumable. The topics are always relevant and provide valuable insight to help improve my teaching methods.
  • 55grateful
    This podcast does a great job of touching on all the big ideas in the world of education right now. It is very relatable and every episode leaves me with a nugget to think about. As a teacher who has been working in an in person setting I have enjoyed hearing the latest on the virtual end and now we are headed that way too.

    Speak up Vicki
    As a teachers in America, we must address the biases in our overwhelming white profession. Vicki needs to step up and use her platform to talk about how educators can become more anti-racist so that we can better serve our students instead of just using the podcast to market her workshops.

    Quick Acts of Inspiration
    I really appreciate Vicki’s ability to find quick ways to inspire a deeper understanding and/or ignition of curiosity for teachers. 10 Min Teacher is always letting me in on the trends and important issues that teachers today should be aware of and can choose to learn more about if it inspires them. Great podcast - any day of the week!

    Positive vibes each day
    This podcast lets me start my day right. Vicki is always so positive and encouraging. I’m in my second year teaching and she really has helped me grow and keep my head up when things get tough.
  • Hanyu Xuesheng
    I have just begun my time in K-12 education with no guidance or structure. Ms. Davis’ guests and own personal recollections give me a positive glimpse into what is possible even with the limited resources I have in China. She even took the time to respond to an email I wrote. If you are a teacher, you will find something here that can brighten your day or help you find a new approach in your classroom.

    Thank You!
    Vicki, thank you for being yourself! It’s encouraging to hear. I love that you own your mistakes and move forward. You’ve helped introduce me to other educators and other thoughts I wouldn’t have found on my own. That’s why I began listening and that’s why I will continue listening. Thank You!

    AR talk with Vicki
    Talking with Vicki brings an elevated challenge to share what you know with others who want to know it but may not that yet. Listening to her encourage teachers to rise and share their knowledge, scope, and excitement is rewarding.
  • breezykeener
    The title says it all, practical strategies for your classroom!
    I love putting this podcast on during my commute. It gives me ideas and let’s me hear from other educators on what to do and not to do. They are encouraging and keep me learning and striving to do better for my students.
  • Charper466

  • TeacherBee
    Great Podcast!
    I take away something from every episode! Thank you for providing the encouragement and support needed for today’s educators!
  • Bukoy47
    I love the research-based, experiential, real-life learning and done succinctly, in a straightforward manner. I can easily and immediately apply most of the strategies. Thanks!

    Perfect Podcast
    I learn so much in just 10 minutes! The topics are relevant and I love hearing from other teachers. I also like the different themed days like “motivational Monday.” @acoms1
  • Jess McNary
    Great topics and quick format!
    My drive to school is just slightly longer than this podcast. Love hearing current tips and trends on my way to school! Enjoy the variety of topics in education!

    Perfect Podcast for Commute to School!
    This is a great podcast to listen to while I drive to school. I get so many useful ideas in a quick, efficient format! Vicki always comes up with topics that I need to hear. I was very excited to listen to Jennifer Scott talk about the google slides yearbook last week because I just started this project with my students. Thank you for the perfect timing! t- @msemilyguthrie
  • Ty mayo
    I love this podcast!
    Educators are busy! I love that I can listen to an episode in the morning while I’m getting ready, and apply something that I learned in class the same week! I just listened to the episode on how to use Google Slides to create a yearbook - idea created by Jennifer Scott, and I really want to try this with my 5th graders. This is an excellent podcast for all educators! @kmayoTechTeach
  • Bethanylouwho
    Awesome show!
    I am going to be teaching AP US History this spring and am constantly researching how to help my students to be successful in the test. The episode with Andrew Sharos discussing his book All 4s and 5s was very inspiring. I felt that I didn’t need to worry about how my students did on the test so much as that I effectively prepared them for college. Thanks for that message! Twitter @bettylou76

    I enjoyed Andrew Sharos' talke with the 10 minute teacher. As a private writing tutor who works with students in AP courses, I found his advice and perspective helpful. My twitter handle is @jbhtutor

    Thoughtful, Bited-sized, Full of Info!
    This daily 10-minute podcast for teachers is invigorating, thoughtful, packed with information and so easy to add to your day. I am in awe of how powerful Ms. Davis' podcast can be to affect change and leverage The Internet to connect teachers with ideas. I'm a first year teacher just beginning my career in Special Education. Thank you, Vicki, for your work!! You are the best!

    Mostly Adverts no substance
    This podcast is perfectly designed to almost take no effort to produce but still be long enough to bring in ad revenue. That being said it is filled with mostly cliches nothing is properly researched or vetted. She just brings on the new flavor of the month or whatever buzz word is trending in education and lets them do their sales pitch to push whatever product or book they are selling. If it wasnt an independent podcast I honestly think it was district sponsored. If you aren't doing the new and latest of whatever we see you are just a naysayer and have no legitimate qualms. For example being told as a teacher to incorporate technology but then they dont give you tablets, laptops to do it. Or if they do then you are forced to use a program like iReady with that technology. If that is your situation you are just a naysayer or you aren't thinking outside of the box. Teaching is one of the very few jobs where you are expected to use your own time, money, resources to go above and beyond and if you dont you are labeled as a bad teacher. I have listened to 15 episodes so far and that is the vibe I get from her podcast. She makes numerous comments about how she "cringes" when teachers teach but it isn't her way. About how all these teachers are missing the point. If you want 9 minutes of smug with an ad at the end then this podcast is for you.
  • LincMom209

    The 10 Minute Teacher Show
    Excellent, practical information for teachers. Sometimes I just wish is was longer than 10 minutes!
  • Jich
    Quality ideas in a short package
    If you like podcast that cut straight to the point and aren't filled with a lot of fluff this is the show for you! The 10 minute teacher features quick ideas that you can implement into your classroom tomorrow

    10 mintues -- just right!
    I enjoy listening to Vicki Davis. The format she uses for each day of her weekly podcast is great! She packs in lots of imformation and even giveaways during her time. I look forward to them each day!
  • elemprin
    Love these podcasts! They are always quick but filled with wonderful ideas. Many are great for schools as a whole and not just individual classrooms. Thank you for these great and inspirational messages!
  • TeacherMike72
    Short and to the point
    Vicki has a ton of enthusiasm and her episodes are just the right length for teachers who are on the go. Definitely not an abstract conversation; you come away not only equipped, but also inspired to use what you've just heard. Great work Vicki!

    Mission and Vision Accomplished
    Your motto is refreshing teachers and renewing hope. You did exactly that when I discovered your podcast. I listened to all (50 at the time) podcasts within a weeks time. I have implemented so many things you have mentioned in your podcasts like Classcraft and Seesaw in my classroom and it has refreshed my teaching. I always am excited to get to my classroom and implement something you have mentioned. Not only has it made me more excited but my STUDENTS too! They are in love and have told me they are excited to have me as a teacher and be in my classroom in the fall. I went ahead and purchased the premium versions just because of the excitement my kids showed. I don't know how to thank you for that. You have also given me hope in today's teacher world since we go unappreciated by the "big dogs" especially recently here in Iowa. I know your time is valuable and I can tell you put so much time and passion into it. It is definitely noticeable. Thank you so much again. You reminded me of why I became an educator. The excitement to try new things and LEARN along with others. My kids thank you too for giving Mr. Jimenez awesome tools to use in his high school Spanish classroom. Good luck and god bless.

    Add to your Professional Development Network!
    Sometimes when I listen to things, it can go in one ear and out the other. So I like to read the transcipts that are included in each broadcast! Lots of great teaching tips, tech tools, and encouraging words for every day life as a teacher. Highly recommend to add to your PDN.
  • Trace da ace
    Perfect for morning drive!
    The 10-Minute podcasts are the perfect length for me to listen to on my drive to school. I am the go to tech person at my school and am always on the lookout for things to share with other teachers from the K3-12 level. I can listen then review the show notes during my planning period. The podcasts are full of information without a lot of useless "filler" conversation.
  • Gagirls
    10-Minutes Teacher is the best!
    Vicky's heart for inspiring teachers shines through brightly in these 10-minute podcasts. The ideas presented are always fresh and innovative, yet vetted by her wonderful variety of guest speakers. Thanks Vicki for bringing us these great ideas in a nugget of time we can all afford. I take something back to my classroom every single time I listen. @kayehlamar
  • MarkEichen
    Vicki is the real deal
    If you are a teacher you know a lot of the PD we receive and the "gurus" we hear from aren't helpful. That's not Vicki. Vicki is in the trenches and gets YOU. The show is what a teacher wants. Answers. Solutions. Great way to find meaning in our work on your way to and from school or during your break. Download it now.

    10-Minutes...Totally Worth I.T.!!
    Two things that are a reality for me in wearing many hats in my career are ample "busy" and minimal "time." I subscribed and listened to a podcast in wonder as to whether this would be worth it for me, since I deal with those realities on a daily basis. What did I discover in doing this...?...I am SO glad I subscribed! This type of on-the-go info is totally worth my time - easy, informative and convenient for professionals like me!! @BrigitteMcCaw

    10 Minute Teacher 5 Ways to AMP up Chromebooks
    This was a great podcast about quick things teachers can do in classroom with Chromebooks. Especially liked idea of using Google Forms for formative assessment as well as using Screencastify. Stations with older students is another great tip. @KimberlyOnak1

    Great podcast!
    Thanks for the awesome podcast. 10 minutes is perfect for my morning commute to get me motivated for the day. I loved today's episode (#30 - 5 Ideas to Level Up Language Arts). I shared the podcast with my classmates in Masters program at FDU as we are studying Reading Scaffolding Strategies. Keep them coming! @mrspbernstein

    #27 Elementary Portfolios with SeeSaw
    I'm new to this. Just listened to my first 10MT podcast with @coolcatteacher and @suzylolley. SeeSaw sounds like it offers a really nice opportunity for my 1st graders to share their work with me and their parents. Would have listened to Suzy longer but I guess 10 minutes flies when you're having fun! Can't wait to get started! Would love to check out Andy's book , The Little Things! Thanks for a great first experience on 10MT!
  • Trevor Fritz
    Quick, insightful, inspiring
    I shared this podcast with another teacher and their first reaction was wow the length is perfect for me to keep up with, which I think is a great concept. I easily listened to all of the episodes within a week and regularly look forward to the next. The guests have great ideas and different perspectives from all around the country. Thanks Vicki! Sincerely, @MrFritz8
