The debut episode of KCPS Homeroom focused exclusively on math. It featured four 15-minute segments, each tailored for a different age group.

As educators work to overcome new challenges — like virtual learning with kindergartners — Kansas City Public Schools is debuting a new daily educational TV show.

Online learning certainly has its challenges for students of all ages, but it's especially difficult if you're a kindergartner. As area teachers figuring out how to do remote learning with students who have never been to class before, KCPS is producing a TV show to helping bridge the gap between the classroom and the couch.

Whether it’s something happening right now or something that happened 100 years ago, some stories don’t fit in the short few minutes of a newscast. As a podcast producer at KCUR, I help investigate questions and local curiosities in a way that brings listeners along for adventures with plot twists and thought-provoking ideas. Sometimes there isn’t an easy answer in the end – but my hope is that we all leave with a greater understanding of the city we live in.
