#83 Peter Braden

(First airdate: March 28, 2017) IF YOU ARE SIX YEARS OLD, HE’S YOUR SUPER HERO. Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Peter Braden, first-grade teacher at Grant Street School. The curriculum has changed over the 29 years he’s been teaching, but his boundless enthusiasm for learning hasn’t. Peter is now teaching the kids of moms and dads who were once his students. And those parents appreciate and love a superhero teacher from classrooms past and present.
