We are excited to have a fellow educator and podcaster, in the studio tonight; Dr. Melissa Sadorf! She makes all the magic happen at the Stanfield Elementary School District and her podcast, The Rural Scoop blew us away with it’s quality and content. We talk to her about the people she interviews, her take on the needs of rural education and just generally pick her awesome brain. It was great to have an Administrator on the show and she was just a pleasure to speak to.
