The Teachers with Alexandra Robbins

interviews Jun 07, 2023

We all know education was turned upside down in March of 2020 from COVID. But what did this truly mean for educators? Author Alexandra Robbins goes behind the scenes to show readers what life is like for teachers in America in her newest book, The Teachers. She follows three teachers through their trials and triumphs over the course of one school year. Learn about their challenges with being under-resourced and over-scrutinized while they try to make connections and safe learning environments in their classrooms.
