Episode 58 - Teachers in Talkies

May 12, 2022

Episode 58 – Teachers in Talkies! In this episode, Katie and Chelsea develop a very complex and completely ridiculous teacher evaluation system in order to put some of their favorite educators from nostalgia-inducing movies and tv shows to the test. Chelsea makes a compelling argument against Yoda, while Katie firmly supports Miss Honey from “Matilda” with ten out of five pencils (it will make sense if you listen)! Katie shares what she learns from the mothers in her workplace, and Chelsea covers a bad combination of birds being and algae. We know teachers across the US are dealing with the stresses of the end of a school year, so we’re keeping this one light. Make sure you are taking care of yourselves!
