(WTNH) – Education for all is everything. Teachers are responsible for that, guiding and nurturing our children and making leaders of tomorrow.

As of late, the job of being head of the class has been nothing short of heroic in a pandemic. A new initiative is afoot right now to bring teachers to the forefront and spotlight them to get the general public to understand what they do day in and day out.

News 8’s Ann Nyberg recently had the chance to talk with Barbara Dalio, the founder, and director of Dalio Education, as well as Sheena Graham, a music teacher at Harding High School in Bridgeport.

You can watch News 8 starting at 5 p.m. next week for stories about teachers educating during the pandemic.
