A Day In The Life

Aug 3, 2015

The exodus of teachers from Kansas has caught the nation's eye. As KCUR launches a series highlighting the numerous challenges Kansas and Missouri teachers face, we ask three educators what a day in their lives looks like.


  • Patrick Flynn is a 20-year veteran math teacher at Olathe East. He just won the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
  • Rebeka McIntosh is in her 21st year in the Grandview school district. This is her seventh year at the district’s alternative school. 
  • Chris Orlando is a 7th Grade social studies teacher in Lawrence. This is his fourth year as a teacher at Southwest Middle School.
