Washington state Teachers of the Year on What Students Need for 2022-23

Although 2021-22 was the first full school year of in-person learning since the COVID pandemic began, it was anything but normal. In fact, students, families, and educators all say that this past year has been the most challenging year they have ever experienced.

In this webinar, Washington state Teachers of the Year Jerad Koepp (2022), Brooke Brown (2021), Robert Hand (2019), Mandy Manning (2018, and the 2018 National Teacher of the Year), Nate Bowling (2016), and Lyon Terry (2015) share what they are hearing from students, parents, and colleagues in their community in the aftermath of the 2021-22 school year, what students need in preparation for the start of 2022-23, and what intangibles they teach students outside of academic curriculum. Students from across Washington state offer their perspectives.

Big thanks to our student panelists:

Moderated by League of Education Voters Communications Director Arik Korman.
