Making a Difference

Foreword from the Editor
"Some of these stories may be difficult to read or believe because of how hard these teachers work, how much they care about their students, and how frustrating and sometimes downright devastating their days--and their semesters--can be."

The Importance of Connection

"For the first few years of my career I was never fully satisfied or fulfilled. I loved teaching, but I didn’t feel like teaching loved me back. Something was missing, I needed more... I realized in order to teach my students, I had to know my students."

Teaching Moments

"The role of teaching content is critical and, in my opinion, our number-one responsibility. However, as the saying goes, students don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care."
