In this episode you will hear a roundtable discussion with teachers in the Educators’ Cooperative. Greg O’Loughlin, who you’ll remember from Episode 16, is back for this episode, along with teachers Alecia Ford, Jennifer Weinblatt, and Marc Anthony Peek.

The Educators’ Cooperative is a growing network of teachers working in classrooms and schools all over Nashville. Working together across the boundaries of private, public, and charter schools, CoOp teachers work to serve, support, and strengthen the vital work happening in classrooms all over our city.

Alecia, Jennifer, and Marc come from a variety of backgrounds and teach in traditional, independent, and charter schools, respectively. In this conversation we discuss how their experiences in the Educators’ Cooperative have enriched both their professional and personal lives. We chat about how they came to teaching, what surprised them about working with teachers from different settings, teacher leadership, and much more. These educators exemplify positivity, openness, and capacity for empathy; all of which I think we need more of in 2019!
