This Month on SOS


We're heading into the final stretch of the 2013-14 school year and on the upcoming podcast agenda you'll find lots to look forward to on Speaking of Schools! We'll be filling teachers in with numerous recertification opportunities, celebrating achievements wit students and hearing a replay of the events at the Teacher of the Year Banquet in April. We'll certainly find time to squeeze in the winner (and maybe the runner-up) in this year's This School's Got Talent competition. We also look forward to presenting listeners with the opportunity to hear from winners in the Poetry Out Loud and Letters About Literature competition. We'll have segments from the Children's Museum of the Upstate, recently recognized as an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution and early April panel discussions on the impact of the Brown decision on Charleston area schools. We're planning on replaying the Wofford remarks of Astronaut Buzz Aldrin in his address there, Girls Circle Training from the Girls Center at the Youth Learning Institute and we will be offering the audio portion of two series produced by the Department of Education and broadcast on SCETV; Principals of Excellence and Career and Technology Educators of Excellence. All this and more on upcoming Speaking of Schools podcasts!
