Last week we thanked teachers for inspiring, challenging, and making us better students and people. We also asked teachers if they “would recommend teaching as a profession and give us their most compelling reason for becoming an educator in the 21st century”. Bonus entries were awarded to those who Subscribed to the Top Shelf Newsletter, Liked Powerful Learning Practice on Facebook, Followed Powerful Learning Practice on Twitter and/or Tweeted about the contest.
We thoroughly enjoyed reading all of the responses and inspirational words. We encourage you to read all of the comments shared by educators from across the globe.
