Continuing the How the Pandemic Impacts K-12 Education series, I am joined by Latoya N. Walker (@latoya_nickee) and Jamila Sams (@jmilz). Latoya is currently in the Navy (San Diego, California) and has taught arts enrichment courses for seven years. She is currently teaching dance through her company, Footwork And Sole (@footworkandsoleco). Jamila is currently serving several school districts, private schools, and charter school networks as an educational consultant with a specialization in school climate and culture. Previously, she was an assistant principal in Baltimore, Maryland. On this episode, we discuss the pandemic’s impact on education, distance learning, side hustles, plans for next school year, and more.
