Sarah's Notes

As you walk out your classroom door this week and walk through those of family and friends to celebrate this season of gratefulness, do so knowing that you are a teacher someone is thankful for. I wanted to share this note as a reminder that as we work to empower learners, as we strive to make school more than just a thing to do, as we negotiate the space between the known and unknown, it’s the doorways — and those guiding teachers — who give us entrance to our best teaching selves. Read it here.

What are you thankful for? Download this sign and share with us on Twitter and Instagram (it doesn’t have to be about teaching!). Use the hashtag #TeachersRock so we can find your responses.
