Testimonials

Jenn

I love that public radio helps me keep my curriculum current. Whenever I’m driving to work or thinking about it I hear a story and think – Oh that has to do with immigration and we are studying immigration and it has to do with today’s news. And I love that then on Listenwise I can log in and put in a key word and I’ve got a lesson plan, I’ve got the story I don’t have to go searching back for it. It’s just there for me. It’s a great resource.”
