Teachers' Lounge Live: End Of The School Year Edition

Students and teachers just finished a school year like no other. Join us for a conversation about the unique challenges and successes of the COVID school year on a special Teachers’ Lounge LIVE. Host Peter Medlin talks to Sycamore Superintendent Steve Wilder, Byron High School teacher Mike McHale and DeKalb High School senior Brayten Wilkerson.





Peter is an award-winning education reporter who has been at WNIJ since 2018. He’s also the host of Teachers’ Lounge: a listener-driven podcast & radio show telling the story of education through conversations with teachers and students. He grew up in Sandwich, Illinois, and graduated from North Central College. When he’s not writing & reporting, Peter loves to run at forest preserves across northern Illinois, cook, & hang out with his cat.
