The “I Am a Rural Teacher” Podcast is a project of the Rural Schools Collaborative. The podcast is being produced as part of the larger I Am a Rural Teacher national advocacy campaign is in partnership with the National Rural Education Association and the Community Foundation of the Ozarks. The project is supported by The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
In this podcast, we’re talking with teachers in real time about how they’re handling the impacts of Covid-19, internet access, and the daily ways, big and small, that rural schools and communities come together to take care of each other.
