About Us

Counting down the days until the end of the year? Escape the stress of school with Class Dismissed, a podcast designed for educators by educators. Each week, we swap real stories - funny and heartbreaking - from our daily lives in school and beyond. Join us to hear lively debate on policy issues, questions from listeners seeking advice, and ridiculous stories from a day in the life of an educator. In a profession that is all-consuming, we need a place to discuss the good and the bad - without censorship or judgement. Tune in on the drive home. These are the conversations that need to be had...after the kids leave. Class Dismissed is hosted by Cristin Kelly, Andy Schmitz, & Cal Wysocki. Follow the show @ClassDismissedu.
