Teacher Appreciation week has arrived! For many of us, that means a Starbucks gift card or even the occasional apple. This year the Center for Teaching Quality has launched an interesting social media campaign. According to the CTQ, “Participating is easy! Tell the world what #TeachingIs to you. Share your definitions, stories, small (and big!) wins, and manifestos via tweet, blog post, Vine, Instagram, YouTube, shareable graphic, Six Word Memoir, you name it! Just be sure to use the hashtag #TeachingIs.” I, for one, am glad to know that there is a call for the voices of teachers to join the conversation about education. Do you think the voices of teachers are being heard by the decision makers when it comes to education policy? Please leave your comments below.
