Teaching Perspectives

18May

Almost everyone has a teacher they remember fondly from their time in school. These are the special ones who can connect with their students, prepare them well for next steps in life, and genuinely care about the success and well being of the students, giving their time, and love to those they teach. Such is the case for the exceptional teachers profiled in this episode. Join us for another special episode featuring our awesome guests Corri Taylor, and Johnathan Stephens. Both are teachers at Lynn Camp High School in Kentucky, who share their backstories of what inspired them to become teachers, the struggles of teaching virtually in the time of Covid-19, how they feel about their students, what their high school experiences were like, and what they would like their students to know. Also joining the conversation is the equally amazing Arthur Canada, who retired from a long career teaching at Lynn Camp a few years ago, but has maintained a close relationship to the school, the teachers, and the students there through his work as the Neighborhood Promise School Coordinator with Berea College. Arthur shares his insights into the past, present and potential future of teaching from his unique perspective. (We had some technical issues recording Arthur during the podcast recording, and there is a great solo interview with him at the end of the podcast.)
