Looking Back on a Pandemic with the Doering Family
The Doering Family

The Doering Family (Luke, Bill, Becka, and Emilee)

For the season finale of Schooled Radio, we interviewed the Doering family: a university technology specialist, a 3rd-grade teacher, a first-year high school student, and a graduating senior ready to begin university life. In this episode, we hear their perspectives on the challenges of the past year and how they responded individually, as well as collectively.
