SixContest #24: What Do Teachers Mean To You?

Monday, May 5th, marks the start of Teacher Appreciation Week! For our SixContest #24, we're teaming up with Center for Teaching Quality (CTQ) [] asking for your six words on what teaching means to you. Tell us about the teacher who opened your eyes or changed your life, or a moment in a classroom that stays with you to this day. If you are a teacher, tell us why you do what you do, your small and big teaching victories—in short: What #TeachingIs to you. The only rules: write from the heart and do so in exactly six words.


This SixContest runs through Friday, 5/9 until 3:00PM ET. Our winner will take home a sleek key tag thanks to our friends at Submit your entries in the comments below or on our social media pages (remember to tag #sixwords and #TeachingIs): | |
