Episode 2: GLITTER GINGERFOOT with Jordan White
On this episode of Learnt, I sit down with Baltimore City Public Schools Special Educator (and future English 9 teacher) Jordan White...in the home that we share. We discuss the paradox of securing a job as a certified teacher in the city when there are pools of TFA and BCTR candidates...which leads us into a discussion of the AlJazeera editorial "Has Teach for America reached its Waterloo?" Then, we discuss Jordan's time in graduate school, how her students should be treated, what my "My Little Pony" name would be, and whether Jordan is a total Alicia Florrick or a Kalinda Sharma (spoiler: she's such a Diane.) Be sure to read the AlJazeera editorial mentioned at http://america.aljazeera.com/opinions/2014/4/teach-for-americacontractpittsburgheducation.html.
