Gerardo and Kevin are back after an unplanned hiatus. The dog days of the school year are here. It takes patience, resilience, and smart pacing, like in a race, to get through the winter. Students are feeling ground down, teachers using up a lot of energy, and anxieties brought about by budget cuts, leadership uncertainty, and a looming testing season, and it’s hard to be optimistic and positive. Especially when it’s still dark in the morning.
The boyz have had a lot on their minds. In Episode 54, they do a Brain Dump–anything and everything on their minds, from musical composition to the RIB process to leadership transitions to a lot of other random stuff. This episode is from the front lines, from the grass roots, and from the heart of teachers during the toughest part of the year. We make jokes and get serious, and celebrate RIB Spirit week. Keep it locked right here. No texting!
