TeachersCount.org Second-Career Teaching

By on June 19, 2009

So I’ve been a little quiet as of late.  After all, it’s been the last two weeks of school and I’m in crunch time on some writing deadlines.  In addition, I’ve got to learn some new-fangled strategies using the Interactive Whiteboard so I can train new teachers in a couple of weeks, even though I still feel like a novice in the technology.  Amongst it all, however has been a sweet pinpoint of light:  I was interviewed recently by David Woolf over at TeachersCount.org.  It was posted today, and you can read our exchange here.  

TeachersCount is a website devoted to celebrating teachers.  Their mission is to “raise the status of the teaching profession and provide resources to the education community.”  You may recognize their poster campaign, “Behind Every Famous Person is a Fabulous Teacher.”  Regardless of their current level of notoriety, you should definitely take note of them…and I’m not just saying that because they made me look so good in my interview.  I’m saying it because they are devoted to serving those who are devoted to education…you.
