004 Grit and Empathy Part II

February 21, 2017

We’re back with Episode 4 Part 2 of Tea With Teachers. I continue my talk with 1st grade teacher Beth Simmonds from the KIPP Promise Academy in Washington, D.C. We begin with her views on race, privilege and the value of listening. She ponders the challenges of being a white educator in a predominately African-American community and hypothesizes as to why charter schools may not necessarily be the answer to addressing equity in education even though she currently works at one.
