On a new episode of Teachers' Lounge, Lissette Jacobson and Maurice McDavid! They’re elementary school principals in West Chicago and the hosts of the podcast “Black, Brown & Bilingüe”! They talked to Peter about the mission of their show – uniting the Black and Brown communities with conversations & education. We covered identity and intersectionality and what it means in education, Illinois’ culturally responsive teaching standards that Maurice helped write, the non-profits they’re both starting on top of everything else and so much more!
