CPS Teacher On Returning To The Classroom After More Than A Decade

In his new book, Chicago Public Schools teacher Gregory Michie writes about what it was like to return to teach in the same middle school in Chicago’s Back of the Yards neighborhood where he began his career after more than a decade as an education professor.

Morning Shift digs into what’s different about the teaching profession this decade compared with the late 1990s and how Michie navigates his role as a white teacher in a school that’s almost exclusively made up of black and brown students.

GUEST: Gregory Michie, Chicago Public Schools teacher, author of the new book Same As It Never Was: Notes On A Teacher’s Return To The Classroom
