Why I #LoveTeaching: Challenge 6

I am so very excited about this week's challenge and all the amazingness that is going to come of it.

I recently wrote a blog post entitled "Why I Will Never Quit".  The post talked about how too often I hear people leaving our profession for one reason or another.  But for me, these kids mean far too much for me to ever walk out on them.

Not too long ago I met two guys, virtually.  First I met Gary Abud.  Gary is an Instructional Coach in Michigan and is the 2014 Michigan Teacher of the Year!  Then last month I got a chance to chat with Sean McComb.  Sean is a teacher in Maryland is the NATIONAL Teacher of the Year for 2014.  Their two brilliant minds have brought you this weeks challenge.

The first thing you can do is watch Sean's quick challenge video HERE.

Then you can watch the PowToon video that Gary made HERE with a little more information.

Gary also wrote a quick blog post that goes into a little more depth of the #LoveTeaching movement this week.  You can read his post HERE.

So what is your challenge this week?  Your challenge is exactly what it says above.  Your challenge is to each day this week share a reason why you Love Teaching using the hashtags #LoveTeaching AND #EduLS.  Let's flood the internet with all of the things that Teachers love about their profession.  Let's do it through blog posts, pictures, drawings, stories, phrases, all kinds of things!



So what are you waiting for? Let's start now!
