Child Care Wizard & Monarch Butterflies | Teachers' Lounge Podcast

Sep 4, 2020

On a new Teachers’ Lounge episode we have Deb Baird. She has ran her own at-home daycare business since 1984.

She talked to host Peter Medlin about her 36 years raising hundreds of kids in her own home. They went into how much it’s changed as she’s gotten older, her focus on nature -- especially monarch butterflies -- and so much more.

In the meantime, we want you to be a part of the show. Send us an email at teacherslounge@niu.edu and tell us how you’re feeling about in-person or virtual school in the fall. And, if you want, record your thoughts & feelings into your phone with your voice memos app, then send the file to teacherslounge@niu.edu and we could feature it on the show. You can also email us there to nominate teachers to be featured on the podcast!
