Classroom Confidential: Two Teachers of the Year on Their Work, Students, and Education Today

Spend an hour with two of America’s best teachers, exploring the ups and downs of their experiences on the front lines of American education. What brought them to the classroom—and why did they stay? What do they wish parents and policymakers understood better about the life of a teacher? What’s changed the most about their jobs in the last few years? How do they focus on students' social and emotional development needs? How is this work valued in their schools and districts, and how do they wish social-emotional issues were treated differently? Furthermore, learn what they are hearing about new policy initiatives from the Trump administration, and how this policy is reshaping their work in ways that are good and bad.
