On Thursday Aug. 13, El Paso Matters held a conversation with some of our public school superintendents, administrators, teachers and parents.

El Paso Matters CEO Robert Moore moderated a conversation with Socorro Independent School District Superintendent Jose Espinoza, El Paso ISD Deputy Superintendent of Administration and Academics Vince Sheffield, Ysleta ISD instructional coach Shay Hulbert, co-founder of Moms on Board Adrianne Moody, El Paso ISDs Executive Director of Community Engagement Melissa Martinez and Socorro ISD Assistant Superintendent Marivel Macias.

Panelists answered questions about online preparation for parents, restarting athletic programs, safety in classrooms, balancing parenting and teaching and students working through transitional phases like preparing for higher education—to name a few topics.
