Conversation 108 – Jessica Gentry – The Tipping Point

By Shane Lawrence

Ed is a weekly podcast about the teaching life. No lists, no inspirational quotes: just honest convo's about the lives of teachers.

After twelve years of classroom teaching, Jessica Gentry decided to call it quits. When she shared her reasons for leaving the profession in an empassioned Facebook post, she didn’t expect that it would go viral, prompting a largely sympathetic outpouring of empathy. We talk about her reasons for leaving, what she misses, and what it would have taken for her to stay the course in the classroom.
