Professor Goldstein: In her own words: “I’m a Jewish transgender Maryland public school teacher. By night I’m still all of these things but I have a guitar in my hands and a microphone in front of me that I’ve been slowly learning how to use over the past decade. I love pop punk. I love country. Whether it’s a nasally, stream-of-conscious screechfest of a song or a carefully crafted ballad that subtly describes how Dinosaur documentaries shaped my childhood, I’ll find a way to get it in people’s ears and make them excited and share that excitement with them! (4 to 6pm)
