Voices from the Field with Jonathan Vander Els: Leah Holz and Laura Tobin

In this podcast, we are joined by Leah Holz, principal of Monroe Consolidated School and Laura Tobin, 5th and 6th grade teacher in Monroe.

We will hear from both a principal perspective and a teacher perspective the lengths their staff in a PreK-8 school of 90 students has gone to continue to maintain and deepen their relationships with their students.

One example Ms. Holz shares is how Belinda Smith, first and second grade teacher, drove around to every mailbox to tie a smiley face balloon with a personal note for each of her students to find. Ms. Tobin shares what her interactions online with her class daily look like, as well.
