During Valentine's Week, teachers all around the country used social media to post why they love teaching! So many positive and inspiring tweets, Facebook posts, Instagram pics & blog posts! What an awesome movement! (Although I'm embarrassed to admit that I was giving a bookmaking workshop to teachers this week and we wrote a little booklet about why we each love teaching. . . I told them to use the "pound sign" LoveTeaching!! That definitely dates me! Ugh, my teenagers would have been mortified and rolling their eyes!! I quickly corrected myself: "hashtag" LoveTeaching!! I'm still learning. . .)
I am always in constant amazement of all the dedicated, fabulous teachers out there. They motivate and inspire me! One of my favorite teacher speakers is Guy Doud, 1986 Teacher of the Year. Here's a 5 minute clip of one of his talks; another testament as to why he loves teaching.
Enjoy our Presidents' Holiday tomorrow! (True, another good reason to #LoveTeaching!) Why do YOU #LoveTeaching ?
