13: Keep Calm and Carry On: Teachers – Part 1

Teachers are considered to be first responders, providing the vital service of caring for and educating our children. They are keeping calm and carrying on preparing and planning for multiple education scenarios of virtual/distance learning, in-person, or hybrid models to provide and care for their students during this uncertainty and fear caused by the pandemic. In Part 1 of our podcast highlighting teachers, we check in with Shannon Dunn, an elementary intervention teacher in Lexington, Kentucky with 26 years experience, to see how she is doing and discuss her thoughts, concerns and hopes for her students and their parents.
