Midday's Back To School Special

In this two-hour program we meet six highly motivated teachers, including an English teacher who became the 2014 National Teacher of the Year, an elementary school teacher who uses the wetlands to teach her students everything from science to civics, and an urban designer turned teacher at Carver Vocational Technical High School. We’ll find out what brought them to the profession and hear about the creative ways they are engaging their students.

Part I

Part II

Midday meets Jody Zepp (2014 Maryland Teacher of the Year), Seun Joshua (Construction and design instructor at Carter Vocational Technical High School), and Courtney Leard (2014 Washington County Teacher of the Year).

Maureen Harvie is Senior Supervising Producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
