In this week's episode, we reflect on the ways the past few months of the pandemic have reshaped schooling. 

Our parent guest is Victoria Hunt, PhD, an educator with over twenty years of teaching and administrative experience and a mom of two young adults. She is the founding principal of Dos Puentes Elementary School, a dual-language K-5 public school in New York City. We talk about the challenges and opportunities that have emerged from the sudden and unprecedented shift to online schooling, and the ways in which we might reimagine schooling moving forward.
