The Black Scholars Podcast

Episode 28—How the Pandemic Impacts K-12 Education Part 3 with Stacey Malone

May 3, 2020

Continuing the How the Pandemic Impacts K-12 Education series, I am joined by the lovely Stacey Malone, a 5th Grade Science and Social Studies teacher who may be transitioning to teach and coach at the high school level next school year. Stacey is also a basketball coach (San Antonio, Texas), and has been teaching for three years. Additionally, she's available for hire as a sport specific skills trainer and coach. On this episode, we discuss why we both left education early in our teaching careers. Other topics of our conversation included the difference between teaching middle school versus teaching high school, how Stacey has been emotionally affected by school closures, distance learning, my hatred of Zoom, educational policy, continuous school improvement, and much more. This conversation is over a hour, so grab a cup of coffee and enjoy.
