COVID and the Classroom - What are Black Educators Saying?

THE SEASON ONE CLOSER! I can't believe it! One whole season done! I decided to end with this conversation because it was just so timely. I will post my audience look back episode as a bonus on Monday.

Listen as three Black educators from three different states talk about what their school districts are doing in the wake of a pandemic and the need to educate our children. What happens to kids whose parents need to work? What about access to technology? How do they feel about the possibility of returning to the classroom?

Listen to their view and what they said they would do if they were called back to the classroom today. This is a candid and honest perspective from educators trying to do the job they love while staying safe too.

About the Podcast

In My Shoes Podcast
You don't know what it's like until you've been In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a podcast about women of color and the issues we face but sometimes don't get to talk about. We will give our perspective, allowing you a glimpse into what it's like to deal with racism, infertility, mental illness, parenting, relationships, colorism, politics, hair, health, you name it - in our shoes.

Sometimes it just takes a moment to hear a personal story to realize things aren't always the way they seem. When you hear someone's personal story you can see things through their eyes, from their perspective, even if it's just for a moment - but that moment may be all it takes to change the way you think about or view women from other cultural backgrounds and skin tones. Walk a mile in my shoes, and find out things aren't always the way they seem.
