This was an awesome blog post and short podcast to listen to. As a future educator, this podcast really opened my eyes to see what teachers were thrown into when the pandemic hit. Thomas talked on the highs and lows teachers felt while doing a combination of virtual and in person teaching and I thought that was super cool.
