Who Was Your Favorite Teacher and Why?

Our favorite teachers remain with us long after we’ve left their classroom.  Even now, some 30+ years later, I remember my favorite teacher like it was yesterday.

What made her so great?  

She made learning fun! Not only that, she’d created a special nickname for every student in our class; which was so crucial for this little shy girl.  I felt I was unique and special and couldn’t wait to get to her class.  She inspired creativity and taught to each student’s learning style. Imagine our happiness when she decided to loop with us to the next grade! Best two years ever!!


How to become a favorite teacher?

Educators, you can totally be that for your students.  How?

  1. Love what you do… It will show!  Children are very perceptive and can see and sometimes feel if you truly like being around them.
  2. Celebrate individuality… Create relationships with each student.  Find their uniqueness and celebrate it.
  3. Be the ultimate learner… Never stop learning and growing in your profession.

Calling all teachers!!

 This weekend, a few (over 1,000!) of our children’s favorite teachers will gather for the Extra Yard for Teachers Summit, the College Football Playoff (CFP) Foundation’s philanthropic event to celebrate and champion teachers and thank them for all they do. 
At its core, the Summit invites all of us to connect with the remarkable possibility and passion of teaching. It’s a fast-paced, half-day event featuring TED-style talks and performances focused only on teachers and open only to teachers. On January 7, 2017, there will be more than 1,000 K-12 teachers from school districts across the Tampa Bay area attending the Summit.
In addition, the College Football Playoff (CFP) Foundation will giving away three classroom makeovers at the Summit as well as giveaways every hour in the exclusive Teachers’ Lounge, which takes place after the Summit. 
Please share this with an educator you know today!!
