The Art of Teaching:
Sharing Educator Stories

In a continually changing landscape, teachers endure by adapting, improving, and overcoming challenges. Guided by research, data, experience, and passion, they seek to mold and inspire future generations. It is this blend—the art of teaching coupled with the science of learning—that we seek to encourage, foster, and celebrate.

Read Real Stories

Discover the stories of educators across the country in the Art of Teaching project. In this guest blog, real PreK–12 educators—like those below—discuss their classroom successes, failures, fears, goals, and strategies as they endeavor to shape their students' lives.

You can join the ranks of inspiring teachers by sharing your own story.

Adam Parker
School Psychologist from Colorado

"There have been some difficult experiences and setbacks over the last few months…. We have every right to feel sad, mad, scared, or frustrated. Being able to express that appropriately will be valuable moving forward."

Carey Crows
K–2 General Music Teacher from Illinois

"To act in allyship, it’s important to recognize that it doesn’t have a destination- we never “arrive” at “being an ally;” it’s about continuous work, continuous reflection and examination, and continuous practice."

Skylar Primm
6–12 Environmental Educator from Wisconsin

"I’ve also found flexibility to be important when dealing with the technology that facilitates remote teaching…We can always reschedule our meetings, but they can’t reschedule their lives."
