Episode 32 : Lauren Bond

What’s really exciting is when students come to the classroom and they get to offer something new that I have not experienced. They get to teach me about new music, a new cool creative project they’re doing. They get to teach me what’s going on in the world that I may not know about because I’m in my little bubble of work and my own life.
— Lauren Bond

Lauren Bond is a good friend of mine, a new mom, and an English Professor teaching at the community college and university levels. She’s married to Matt who’s also an English Professor. When they got engaged, they made a commitment not to each other, but also to health and fitness. On this episode we discuss the realities of being a teacher today, if it’s true that universities are pushing a liberal agenda, why teaching is one of the best career paths available, and what it looks like to take on fitness as a couple.
