I can’t believe this show gets to release content like this…
Dr. Mary Howard is a professional who is astounding in her insight, her dedication, and her effectiveness in communicating with educators. If you haven’t run into her on Twitter, you’ve probably run into the hashtag she co-created, #G2Great. If not, you’re in for a real treat for this two part epic.
This episode is the piece that most clearly exemplifies why I created Teach Me, Teacher. It is an episode about empowering educators to grow, to learn, and to fight for their profession in the best way they can…by getting BETTER.
I needed to hear what Dr. Mary Howard had to say on this episode, and so do you. Her literacy minded message, and her advice on how to grow professionally are among the best words I’ve heard on the subject.
