Can you say "I love my job" in the middle of a pandemic?
Nov 18, 2020 Season 3 Episode 8
Josh Britton and Derek Maxson

In this episode of the Get More Math podcast, Josh chats with Rita Sponenburg about how after 18 years of teaching math, the pandemic finally forced her to switch to a flipped classroom.  That coupled with Get More Math,  Rita is able to wake up each morning and reflect on how much she loves her job, not an easy thing to do in the middle of a pandemic.   Now that she’s adjusted, she says there’s no going back.
