Oh man! We’ve got yet another fantastic episode for you!

In this episode we wrap up the last show of 2017 with some reflections and some optimism. Sonny chats with SFUSD 5th grade teacher and wise friend Dr. Yvette Fagan about the Western Addition neighborhood of San Francisco, a 26 year teaching career and sagely wisdom.

    So I’m not getting the podcast to load. I work with a Bay Area organization called, The Black Teacher Project. So this interview is of high interest to me.

        Finally got it to work. I’d tried it with both Soundcloud and Google Play. It works with Soundcloud definitely. And just checked Google Play which now works. Not sure what was going on before. Thanks so much for your response!
