Sarah's Notes

There's nothing about working at Teaching Channel that fuels me more than connecting with other teachers. Every email, discussion post, tweet, or in-person meeting reminds me that the impenetrable spirit of our work here resides in our collective desire to get better together. To see each other for who we really are in the classroom, to celebrate our successes, to learn together as we struggle. It's this sense of community, of our in-it-togetherness, that elevates us all.

Because of this shared camaraderie, I know that you'll join me in extending a welcoming hand to a very special addition to the Teaching Channel family: Tom Jenkins, our newest Teacher Laureate. Tom is every bit as passionate, curious, and accomplished as any teacher I've met, and I simply can't wait for you to get to know him. As a veteran science teacher, he brings with him a depth of experience that we're all going to benefit from. Together, we're looking forward to being advocates for teacher voice where teachers need it most: their classrooms and schools. Join me in welcoming him by reading his introductory blog post and giving him some of your Tch love in the comment section that follows. We truly are getting better together.
