Staples, My New Best Friend
In the Teacher, Teacher blog, Geri writes about her transition from Broadcast TV Producer to High School Teacher in Brooklyn. This is her first blog post on the topic.

August 2, 2017

I am noticing some differences between producing daily news (from which I am taking a break) and teaching high school.

For one thing, a teacher prepares. In my traditional role, no prep for the day because news happens daily. You can't write what hasn't happened yet. And on the flip side of the day, there's no home work.

My new role: It's more than a month before I report for my first class at bishop Kearney, and I am already shopping for supplies.

And just like that, Staples is my new best friend.
