The Black Scholars Podcast

Episode 44—The Pandemic in Education 2.0 (featuring Ms. Wright)

December 25, 2021

Leonard: "If you had one word that would describe not just you, but your purpose in life as far as you understand it right now…and you had to get it tattooed on you…what would that word be and why?"

Elisia: "Grace. Why? You have to give yourself grace. I tend to be hard on myself, and have to remind myself to give myself grace. I’m learning as I go.”

Join The Black Scholars Podcast and Elisia Wright (@thatswright) as we discuss how the pandemic has impacted K-12 education. Ms. Wright is a skilled elementary school teacher living in Miami, Florida. She’s a Florida A&M University graduate.
