Noelle Morris: Hey, teacher friends! Well, it's time for a well-earned break. We all deserve it, (even the Teachers in America team!). Because we survived another year of virtual, hybrid, and in-person learning. As we go into our summer hiatus, I wanted to recommend a few episodes just in case you're new to the podcast, or want to go back to an older season.
My favorite episode is LaQuisha Hall’s. That was my first time podcasting, interviewing, going into a teacher's classroom. I just loved everything about it. I loved the ability to hug. I loved seeing LaQuisha’s classroom. And from that conversation, guess what? There’s still a friendship and a connection.

My next favorite Julia Allen. It was so amazing to me—a teacher who's teaching kindergarten in the classroom where she was once a kindergarten student. How often does that happen? My mind was blown by this.
Wearing the Kindness Cape with Julia Allan
Because it's so hard to narrow it down to just a few of my favorites, I would be remiss if I did not mention my interview with Angelica Moreno. I loved talking about her childhood, her move to the United States, her family, her classroom, her perspective as being a teacher, and just overall happiness of culture and loving what we do.

Finally, I love talking to CJ Reynolds. Man, talk about two people that come in with the same energy. Just so y'all know, I accidentally left the rest of the Teachers in America team standing there like, “Wait, did they already start the conversation?” Everybody wants a friend like CJ, where you can just walk up and start a conversation, whether it was from yesterday or two years past.
