In the fourth episode of “The 2023 UCF VLP Institute Podcast Series,” Sebastian spoke with three K12 teachers: Sharon Forand, Ryan Dane Rasmussen, and Alexis Wood. Sharon is an ELA and Social Studies teacher at Enterprise Elementary, Ryan is a high school teacher at Freedom High School, and Alexis is a fourth-grade teacher (all subjects) at Azalea Park Elementary.

In the first “after-hours” conversation of the series (recorded at the hotel once the day’s itinerary was over), the three teachers went into great detail about their overall experience at the Institute, specifically with their Veterans. Given that the teachers had just finished Day 7 out of 10 of the Institute, which included a workshop titled “Mapping Memories: Outlining your Biography,” they could clearly articulate the progress they have made with their Veteran bio. Also, being at the Institute for a week, these three teachers emphatically expressed its impact—both professionally and personally.

This episode was directed, produced, written, edited, and hosted by Sebastian Garcia, and featured Sharon Forand, Ryan Dane Rasmussen, and Alexis Wood.

Executive Producers: Sebastian Garcia and Dr. Amelia Lyons.

Music: “Honor and Glory” and “Real Heroes” by SergePavkinMusic (Pixabay)
