Yeah, I’ve been working away on planning for the TEDxWellsStreetED event in Chicago, scheduled for Sept. 28, so it’s been quiet here at Teachers Speak Up. But I saw yet another great Atlanta teacher portrayed by Peter Smagorinsky in the Atlanta Journal Constitution blog hosted by reporter Maureen Downey. So please read about Atlanta teacher Dave Winter. But as Smagorinsky points out, he’s not unusual even though he’s won many awards — there are loads of teachers like him everywhere.
So even if you’re hesitant to brag about your own great teaching, you can pen a portrait of an outstanding colleague. Do this NOW, before the busy-ness of the coming school year closes in.
And do it because school districts like Chicago’s are de-funding strong public schools at a disastrous rate.
