The Teacher Tunnel Podcast is a real, entertaining and enlightening look at teacher and leaders in education and beyond. We learn from these leaders narrative, daily rituals, habits, and routines. As a teacher and life-long learner, Jon Belt wants to bring great people and thinkers to the surface and share their story.

In this episode, I speak with the Teresa Danks aka "The Panhandling Teacher. Teresa has been featured on Good Morning America, Inside Edition, and even the Harry Connick Jr. Show. Like many teachers in this nation, Teresa was fed up with the lack of respect towards teachers in this state and instead of waiting for someone else to step up she started voicing here concerns — first with panhandling for classroom supplies and then creating a petition after another teacher pay increase in Oklahoma failed on the Senate floor.

We discuss Teresa's journey up until this point, the fear that teachers need to relinquish, and some action steps and advice to those teachers listening.
