And the July Teachers of the Month are …

Starting in July, TeachersConnect (TC) is recognizing the top six “Terrifically Trendy Teachers” (those who submitted the most engaging posts of the month) with a modest “recognition” gift card. We provide this recognition for the positive impact these posts have on the entire TC community. Engaging posts like these are the lifeblood of TeachersConnect and are critical to the health and success of the community. The gift card is a symbol of our appreciation of your contributions. You’re making a direct and enduring impact on the skill, confidence, and joy of TC teachers throughout the world.

Initially, we are awarding the recognition gift card to the top 6 trending posts as follows:

– $50 each to the top 2 teachers
– $25 each to the next 4 teachers

The top six are highlighted below in italics. If you’d like to share your thoughts on this experiment, send a note with your feedback and ideas.

Here they are, your Teachers of the Month for July! Click on the links below to join the discussions and follow these leaders.
