This podcast project was developed in order to provide the public with access to our teachers experiences in their profession. Teachers are uniquely positioned at the heart of our communities and have a pulse on the joys and struggles of our children and families. Our goal is to collect the stories of our teachers so that we may reap a greater understanding of the demands of the teaching profession and the kind of community engagement that is needed to empower our educators in their transformative work with our children.
Conversations with teachers about their past and present teaching experiences will be included in research. The narratives collected and shared with the public will be analyzed for themes that reveal how the teaching profession is being shaped by policies, practices, and language. These conversations will also be analyzed to identify the unique challenges teachers confront in their profession.
