Welcome to the TeachPlus Podcast!

This season we will be investigating the key issues taking place in Rhode Island education as well as delving into the work being done by the Teach Plus Fellows along side the Rhode Island Department of Education.

In Episode 4, we first hear from Paige Clausius-Parks - Senior Policy Analyst for Rhode Island KIDS COUNT - about the issue of child poverty, and how trauma effects student outcomes.  Next, we hear from Teach Plus Fellow Kristine LaPierre - English Teacher from Hope High School in Providence  - about her work with KIDS COUNT to improve the social emotional learning and safety of Rhode Island's students.  Finally, we hear again from Policy Fellows Kristen Beland and Stacy Jones about the role that social emotional learning plays in the classroom and beyond.

Join us for new episodes every Friday as we delve into issues such as Recruiting and Retaining Teachers of Color, Culturally Responsive and Sustaining Curriculum, Multilingual Learner Education, Teacher Pre-Service Education, and the future of education in Rhode Island. The Teach Plus Podcast is produced by Senior Policy Fellow - Raymond Steinmetz (@blended_math).

The mission of Teach Plus is to empower excellent, experienced, and diverse teachers to take leadership over key policy and practice issues that advance equity, opportunity, and student success. Teach Plus believes that all students should have the opportunity to achieve their potential in an education system defined by its commitment to equity, its responsiveness to individual needs, and its ability to prepare students for postsecondary success.  Teach Plus believes that when we invest in developing our most talented teachers into teacher leaders who are well-informed, persuasive, and prepared to lead, they have deep leverage in advancing equity for students, especially for students of color, low-income students, and those from underserved communities.  Find out more at www.TeachPlus.org or follow us on twitter @teachplus or @teachplusri.
