How 2020 Has Changed What It Means to Be a Teacher

Reflecting on the Challenges, Transformation, and Wisdom the Year Has Brought

To look back on the year and how it has changed education forever, we hosted a Twitter Chat this past week with a panelist of several standout Art of Teaching guest bloggers. We covered all things 2020, from how a pandemic disrupted the way education is delivered, to why social and emotional learning, and equity and inclusion, must be present in all aspects of instruction. We were thrilled with the engagement and responses we received from participants across the country. See below for a snapshot of some of the most profound, insightful, and encouraging commentary that came out of the chat, and make sure to follow #2020TaughtMeChat on Twitter to keep up with the evolving conversation!
