Doug and Alek are joined by Justine Galbraith, an English teacher who recently penned an op-ed titled ‘I’m a teacher. Why am I considered expendable?’ for Michigan Advance. Galbraith shares the fear, frustration, and anxiety she has experienced as an educator amid a global pandemic, while Alek and Doug serve as a two-man hype team for teachers, listing their favorite fictional educators, and lamenting over the lack of Capri Sun, trail mix, and pizza parties they’ve experienced since reaching adulthood.
You can follow Galbraith on Twitter at @Sragalbraith. Keep Your Voice Down’s theme is “Howling at the Moon” by D Fine Us, and this week’s outro music is “Wonder Boy” by Syncro.
