We last heard from Matt Hornbeck—longtime principal of Hampstead Hill Academy, a K-8 school in Baltimore city—in the spring after schools abruptly closed. Hornbeck now returns to the podcast to talk with Dr. Josh Sharfstein about the first few weeks of online learning and what a typical day looks like. They also discuss successes and setbacks, how to think about prioritizing ESOL students and those with special needs, and what might happen regarding reopening for in-person learning in the months ahead.
