Be an Education Advocate: Learn, Connect, and Speak Up
I think I might be an education advocate. I say “think” because I never considered that my lone little voice was enough to make a difference. Oh sure, we've all heard the "power of one person" speeches. We know individuals who have triumphed over incredible odds and become spokespersons. But that’s not me, is it? I don’t have any incredible background story. I feel like I’m just a regular teacher, but that right there is the point. I actually have some very valuable opinions on teaching, students, and what’s right for education. Believe it or not, people listen.
