Don’t Fall Out of the Boat with Vicki Davis
Today’s 700th-anniversary message is a gift to teachers, educators, and parents everywhere. This show is a lifeline for those who need an anchor of purpose. Teachers have been confiding in Vicki that in such a turbulent time as this, many of them feel like they’re careening along in a raft, in level five waters, with no end in sight. You can make it. Today is a special anniversary episode – a little longer than our usual one but from Vicki’s heart to yours. Teachers, you matter! Your job is important!
