The Penn State Lehigh Valley Writing Project has been my happy place as a teacher since 2004. It’s provided me opportunities to learn, lead, write, make mistakes, develop friendships, and more. Because life is about the sweet and the bitter, he horrific events in Charlottesville this summer were the catalyst for an LVWP bucket list initiative: our own podcast.
Thanks to the our fearless site director, Doug Antonioli, I am now part of Open Mic, a monthly podcast exploring the intersections of education and social justice. Enjoy our first episode: Teaching In The Wake of Charlottesville.
Our next episode is about supporting transgender students. Stay tuned.
