Beyond Our Bell
Amazing things happen beyond the bell
We are Cory Austen and Jose Alvarez. Jose is a Librarian and Cory is a Innovation Coach at the American School Foundation of Monterrey, Mexico. Since 2017 we decided to explore the podcast medium to share stories of the interesting and amazing things that go on 'Beyond our Bell' at school. We are currently producing their first season, where topics ranging from space exploration, STEM, environmental culture and LGBT issues. Although the first season focuses on our local community they look forward to collaborating and hearing stories from around the globe.
