Nominate a teacher: Teachers in their Power
Hi friends! Some of you may know me from when I worked on Apple's Worldwide Education team, especially the Apple Learning Coach program. I'm currently working on a storytelling project called Teachers in their Power and would love your nominations.
☑️ Nominate a teacher here: teachersintheirpower.com
Teachers in their Power is focused on changing the narrative about the teaching profession. Through a combination of photography and interviews, the project profiles the American teacher, quilting together perspectives from communities across the country. The goal is to foreground teachers as humans, not heroes — and in a sea of systemic challenges, to focus on what can be done to help powerful teachers stay. Because teacher voice is vital to meaningful policy change, the project focuses on empowering and entrusting teachers to share their stories long after the project is done.

“There are things in education that could be better. There are also a lot of great things happening that people don't look at or don't want to see because they want to send a bigger message, especially when it comes to public education.
I think we need to focus on the things that are going well. There's still a lot of learning that happens in schools, there are still a lot of great relationships that are forged in schools. There is still a lot of growth happening for students. And I think that sometimes the public messaging is so focused on the negative things that we miss all the good.”
