Join Us for a Twitter Chat Celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week!
#ArtofTeachingChat on May 10 @ 8 PM EST
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week, educators! To celebrate, we’re hosting a Twitter chat on May 10 at 8 PM EST all about the art of teaching. Oftentimes, Twitter chats focus on discipline-specific strategies to implement in the classroom. While this chat will spark conversation about strategy, it’s truly about exploring teaching as a profession. We want to provide you with the time and space to reflect on what drives you to power through your most difficult days, what energizes you on your best days, and what brought you to this profession in the first place. There will be opportunities for storytelling, advice-sharing, and goal-setting.
We’re happy to introduce our featured panelists for this chat, all talented educators and guest blog contributors for the Art of Teaching Project. In the chat, you’ll connect with:
