Teacher Voices

Teacher Wall was a virtual teacher town square where America’s educators can share their stories, knowledge, and ideas on our nation’s schools. Sponsored by Scholastic, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and DonorsChoose.org, the project provides teachers with an opportunity to talk about what’s important to them. From challenges to A-ha! moments, from professional development to job satisfaction, from curriculum to parent engagement – the topics tackled on the Wall showcase a wide range of voices and provide teachers with a chance to interact, share, and learn from one another, all while contributing to the conversation on American education.

CET interviewed local teachers about their experiences and has shared them on Teacher Wall. We have also added them to this collection for American Graduate Cincinnati.
