002 The White Knight Syndrome

January 25, 2017

On episode 2 of Tea With Teachers, I talk to another coworker of mine, Mike Conners. He, just like me, is an ELL Teacher at EL Haynes Public Charter School in Washington, D.C. Mike and I explore his experience in the military, his depression that followed and how all of this prepared him for teaching. We delve into what it was like growing up in a small, conservative town in Idaho with white supremacists in the vicinity. You’ll also hear how being white and in an interracial marriage with three biracial children has influenced him.
