    Literacy Talks is my new favorite podcast
    I am loving these first few episodes of Literacy Talks. There have been several times when I listen to Donell speak and I have chills. There is just so much knowledge and passion shared by these three women and it is evident that they always put students first. Great tips and conversations…Looking forward to many more episodes!
