If nothing else, I am a persistent person. When I get an idea in my head or set a specific goal, I can become doggedly determined until I accomplish what I set out to do.
On July 10th, about two weeks after I started the Teacher Voice project, I emailed Mike Schmoronoff*, the publisher of the Hillsborough County School Board Whistleblower Facebook page and asked if he would be willing to do an interview. He politely declined. Multiple times, in fact. But I kept asking every four or five weeks, and he finally relented provided I could preserve anonymity and he could listen to the podcast prior to it being published on Teacher Voice.
We covered a lot of ground in just under seventeen minutes. Please listen and share with other interested education stakeholders in Hillsborough County and beyond.
Thanks for listening, everyone, and have a wonderful week!
* NB – “Mike Schmoronoff” is a pseudonym used by the WB page, not the person’s actual name. Again, the conditions for me doing the interview called for strict anonymity.
