S04 E04 – Teachers Are Heroes


Teachers and educators are facing challenges like never before, including battling misinformation, burned-out kids, parents, and of course—COVID.

Join J.R. Jamison as he explores these challenges and shares the story of a man who stays in teaching despite external pressures; another from a woman who uses empathy to teach multicultural education; and one from a teacher who decided to make her own kind of change—at the Statehouse.
