Connections: Local teachers share their perspectives on reopening schools

Aug 21, 2020

What do teachers think about going back to school? In recent weeks we've talked to parents, superintendents, security workers, custodial staff, bus drivers, and more. But today is our first chance to hear from teachers. Privately, we've been hearing from teachers all summer long. Some are eager to get back to the classroom. Others are profoundly concerned about safety and their own health. 

This hour, we hear from teachers from several school districts. Our guests:

  • Olivia, special education teacher in the Greece Central School District
  • Anne Baughman, chemistry and physics teacher in a local district
  • Kristen French, speech language pathologist at the Rochester City School District
  • Meagan Harris, special education teacher in the Rochester City School District
