It’s a challenge to host a weekly space for conversation while balancing the needs of a community with opportunities to introduce them to new ideas, thoughts, and individuals. We always strive to focus on Michigan issues and educators when we can, but we also know there’s value in bringing in thoughtful voices from outside the state that challenge us, and help us grow. That’s why we felt the need to take a retrospective with this week’s chat.

Rachelle Wynkoop helped walk us through bits and pieces of previous conversations, as well as share what’s on our minds. If you have trouble viewing the archive of the chat, you can view the entire Storify archive here.
