Introducing our new podcast, Shoulder to Shoulder!
Many of us listen to podcasts as a way to pass the time while traveling to and from districts or even in our own personal downtime. As a community of learners, we are always looking to gain insight into our individual roles and build our collective expertise by learning through the experience and knowledge of others. The Shoulder to Shoulder podcast is a new and exciting way to learn and grow while also allowing us to get to know our colleagues even more.
In our first team member spotlight episode, we catch up with Golda Sharpe to talk about her personal pathway toward becoming an educator, some unique insights into our current work, and the moments that have inspired her along the way.
Sierah Tyson speaks with Sonja Bloetner, ESOL Supervisor at Montgomery County Public Schools in Maryland, about equitable education for English learners.
With initial walkthroughs taking place at the beginning of the school year, we invited Dory Creech to share some insights into the topic of walkthroughs in general, her preparation and facilitation processes, and some tips and tricks for all of us as we get out on the road and into schools.
