Celebrating Teachers

Everyone has a story about a remarkable teacher.

At Teaching Channel we cherish these stories because they are part of who we are today. Pat Wasley, our chief executive officer, remembers her high school English teacher, Ms. Emery, who became her mentor and collaborative partner when Pat began her own teaching career. And Candy Meyers, our chief product officer, credits her high school debate coach Mr. Sanders for making a so-so student so much better.

We believe what makes teachers inspiring is how they became experts—the hours and years they've dedicated to improving their craft to benefit their students. We’re working every day to capture their techniques on video so that all teachers—new or seasoned—have a place to find inspiration. Of course you could just lean back and admire great stories, but we also provide tools to take a few notes, trade ideas, and even build your own personal workspace. And because we know teaching is not one-size-fits-all, we tailored our technology so you can find what works best for you.

Inspired teaching, like any great art, should be seen. Teaching Channel lifts the curtain on inspiring classrooms not only at this website, but on our YouTube and Facebook channels, and on PBS channels nationwide (check your local listings).

Teachers like Ms. Emery or Mr. Sanders shouldn't be kept a secret.

They should be celebrated.
