In a matter of days, our world has significantly changed. A week ago, we could go to restaurants with large groups of friends. A week ago, we could go out to the movies if we wanted. A week ago, we were cheering on our favorite college basketball teams as March Madness was only beginning.

A week ago the four of us were teaching 8th graders at Oldham County Middle School.

In a matter of days, we went from teaching in our classrooms with 8th graders surrounding us, to creating digital lessons for our students from miles away. We went from laughing in the hallways together to group messages and emails. We went from high fiving students to lagging Google Meet conversations.

A week ago we would have never made this podcast.

We’re just four teachers who want to stay connected to our students, our school community, and one another. This podcast is a way for us to do that while still keeping our distance. Each episode we will take 5 questions from our own students to discuss and explore topics and ideas suggested to us by them. You can absolutely expect laughing and sarcasm, but, more than that, you can expect to hear a unique perspective into the infamous NTI days from the view of the teachers behind the screen!

We’d love to take you along this journey with us.

A lot can change in a week. A week ago, our students would have seen us laughing together in the hallways of Oldham County Middle School, today they’ll hear us laughing on a podcast.

    Episode 6: Train Rides, Facing Fears, Ghost Tours, and Sketchy Hotels

    Episode 6: Train Rides, Facing Fears, Ghost Tours, and Sketchy Hotels

    There is a beauty to the world feeling small. When we walk through life, through good and bad times, we find comfort in stumbling across the familiar: the familiar paths home, the familiar faces in the grocery store line, the familiar names that pop up in conversations that end in, “Wait, I know him!” AndContinue reading "Episode 6: Train Rides, Facing Fears, Ghost Tours, and Sketchy Hotels"

    Episode 5: Strengths, Weaknesses, Binge Watching TV, & Losing Sleep

    Community and how we experience it in our daily lives has changed. It’s an always, ever changing aspect to our existence anyways, but in the past few weeks we have seen a drastic shift in how we interact with the people in our lives. We no longer chat in the hallways after the last bellContinue reading "Episode 5: Strengths, Weaknesses, Binge Watching TV, & Losing Sleep"

    Episode 4: Our First Interview, Ever!

    Episode 4: Our First Interview, Ever!

    Classrooms lay empty. Hallways are barren, not a yell or a shout of laughter to be heard. The bus docks are silent, an asphalt wasteland. NTI days have increased and the batteries of computers, iPads, phones, and webcams are drained. We miss our students. We miss our routines. We miss our people and the placesContinue reading "Episode 4: Our First Interview, Ever!"

    Episode 3 – Spring Break, Teacher Favorites, and Life Without Teaching

    Episode 3 – Spring Break, Teacher Favorites, and Life Without Teaching

    As far back as we can remember, spring breaks have always been times of rest and…almost revival of sorts. By the time spring breaks arrive, students and teachers alike have endured three entire months of nonstop work, studying, and routine. We’ve been bundled up as we face harsh winds and gloomy days over and overContinue reading "Episode 3 – Spring Break, Teacher Favorites, and Life Without Teaching"

    Episode 2: Banana Messages, Dating, Signature Emojis, and Quarantine

    Episode 2: Banana Messages, Dating, Signature Emojis, and Quarantine

    For thousands of years the phrase “once upon a time” signifies the beginning of culture-shaping stories. This phrase acts as a transport to fictional worlds with outlandish characters made of queens, monsters, knights, mermaids, and talking wildlife. This phrase is the bridge between our modern, technological world to fables and fairy tales of days longContinue reading "Episode 2: Banana Messages, Dating, Signature Emojis, and Quarantine"
