Thanks to YOU, Teaching Channel recently reached a milestone — One Million Registered Users!
We were so excited to celebrate all that you’ve contributed over the years, we knew we couldn’t let this moment pass without a little bit of fanfare. Our Tch Laureate Emeritus, Sarah Brown Wessling, penned a letter to welcome our One Millionth Tcher. But we also wanted to show our appreciation for all you’ve done — sharing your classrooms and your practice with one another and, ultimately, getting better together — with a giveaway and some great prizes for a few lucky winners.
And there’s no better time to celebrate our winners than as they head back to their classrooms to do what they do best!
What Does One Million Mean?
Metaphorically, one million represents an incomprehensibly large number, as in “Never in a million years” or “You’re one in a million.” We might say, “I’ve walked a million miles” to depict an extreme, or pronounce, “That’s the million-dollar question” to articulate a crucial need for a solution.
But today, one million means even more
Today, the 1,000,000th teacher registered to be a member of our amazing Teaching Channel community. This is no small feat — and this remarkable moment warrants celebration.
Editor’s Note: Join Sarah and Teaching Channel in our goal to reach One Million Teachers by referring your friends and colleagues while earning more ways to win great prizes!
Dear One Millionth Tcher,
I’ve been thinking about you for a long time. I’ve been wondering if you would show up and what you’d be like if you did. Would you be finishing your first year in the classroom or would you be nearing your last? Would you arrive by happenstance or because someone else led you here? Would you be passionate and confident or feeling alone and misunderstood? Would you be from this side of the globe or from another? No matter how you got here or what shape you’re in, let me tell you what it means to all of us to have you, our one more zero.
Thanks to you, Tch is about to reach an amazing milestone: one million members!
At this very website over the years, you’ve watched your colleagues open their doors, share their practice, take risks, and help us all get better. You’ve added your own thoughts, ideas, and suggestions. You’ve praised, promoted, and proselytized, critiqued, cajoled, and, yes, sometimes cried.
And through it all, you did the very challenging and critical work each day of being a teacher and trying, with the help of the Tch community, to improve your craft. For that, all of us at Tch thank you.
To mark this upcoming milestone, and to show our appreciation, we’re launching our Tch One In A Million Giveaway.
