Great video. I would love to see a video showing more specifically what Ms. Brown does in her class that earned her this amazing honor.

I always enjoy teachers engaging students in the learning process. Mrs. Brown opens her classroom to the world which meas she is willing to share her victories and mistakes. Thank you Mrs. Brown.

Hi Sarah, Flattening the hierarchy in the classroom is such a progressive and equitable idea. It gives the voice of the learner a more level and fair opportunity to contribute to their own learning preferences. As a life long learner I very much enjoy learning from you. Thank you for sharing.

Ms. Brown Wessling...I have watched many of your videos and I consistently read your blog. Although we teach different disciplines, your modeling of best teaching practices inspires me to always find ways to up my game and to always strive to do better for my students. I especially enjoyed the video about time management where the message was just so simple...."when things get mucky...." and "don't panic". Thank you so much for all you do on this website. I have learned so much from you. I can see, without a doubt, why you were chosen as a National Teacher of the Year.

Hi Rodney, I can see that somehow I missed your message and this is a much-belated response. Thank you for all of your kind words, but most importantly thank you for seeing the ways that we need each other to "up our game." I'm constantly inspired by other teachers and am so fortunate to be able to share that with this amazing Teaching Channel community! All best, Sarah
