A Podcast for Middle School Teachers

Meet the Hosts

Brittany - The Colorado Classroom

Hey there, I’m Brittany! I taught for 17 years, all in 6th grade, but half of it was in an elementary school set-up, and half was in a middle school. I’ve taught every subject, but history and math are my loves. I’ve been making teacher curriculum since 2013 and enjoy helping teachers grow and thrive. When not working, I am a wife to my high school sweetheart and a mother to two wonderful kids.

Ellie – Cognitive Cardio Math

I’m Ellie, a wife, mom, grandma, and dog ‘mom,’ and I’ve spent just about my whole life in school! With nearly 30 years in education, I’ve taught: All subject areas in 4th and 5th grades as well as Math, ELA, and science in 6th grade (middle school).

I’ve been creating resources for teachers since 2012 and have worked in the eLearning industry for about five years as well!
