Current Episode

Way back in season one, Jim interviewed six yearbook advisers who had just wrapped up their first year of advising. Five of these yearbook advisers are still at it. For the start of the new season, Jim checked back in with those five to see how they’re doing and what they expect as they head into their third year of advising yearbook.  These advisers represent a broad range of schools. From California to North Carolina, from high schools with thousands of students to a high school with less than 100 students, these advisers bring a broad range of experience to the episode. Despite their different backgrounds, they all have one thing in common: they came back and kept advising yearbook.
