February’s top post was from Megan Forbes: To Start We All Want Better. It begins:
“In the introduction, Cornelius Minor writes, “No matter what drew us to teaching or how we got here, we all have a few things in common. To start, we all want better.”
What is something you want to make better for your students? Did you have negative experiences in school that you want to rectify with your teaching? Or maybe you had great teachers and you want to give back and make sure your students get those same opportunities. What is the main thing you are trying to improve in the school system/your school/your community/your classroom/society in general with your teaching?”

Here are some of the top 7 takeaways for how teachers can reach every student. Continue reading 7 Powerful Ways to Reach Every Student in Your Classroom

Fellow TC teachers commiserated, provided hope, and shared coping mechanisms. The teacher was heartened and expressed tremendous gratitude for the support. Click here for post. Another teacher, facing a custody hearing, got great insight and comfort from other teachers who had faced that experience. Click here for post.
