This week is McGraw Hill Educator Week!
In November of last year, we held our first week-long celebration of educators. We were so moved by the dedication and heroics of those who supported children and families throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and wanted to thank them in unison. As an education company, we have the privilege of supporting millions of teachers and instructors around the world with our materials and services. And I know each of our 3,700 McGraw Hill employees has had a unique experience with a teacher who has helped them find their path – as I’m sure you all have as well. Needless to say, we admire them!
This year, we celebrate the uniqueness that makes each individual educator special, and the unique paths that educators have taken to the classroom. No two teachers are exactly alike, and those differences are what help them make the connections with learners that transform lives.
Take Corwyn Collier, a high school history teacher in Maple Heights, Ohio. Corwyn served in the Army National Guard and was deployed to Iraq in 2009 where he was hit and injured by a roadside bomb. While he recovered in Walter Reed Hospital, his path turned toward teaching.
