Today, across the Twittersphere we are talking #teacherleadership. This topic is near and dear to my soul.
Back in August we launched the first ever #HCSinnovate Teacher Fellowship in Hardin County Schools. This group is compromised of some of the best teacher leaders I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. On my way to work yesterday I realized that we needed to let **everyone else** get to know each of the fellows individually. I’ve said it once (or 100 times before) and I’ll say it again: We have the best teachers EVER in this district. It is well past time that we all get to know each other just a little bit better.
I started with my girl, Stephanie at North Middle School. I texted her, told her I had a crazy idea that I wasn’t going to tell her about so that she couldn’t say no, and I asked what day/time worked best. Her response? “Why wait until tomorrow, come today.” See what I mean?!
Stephanie has taught all over the world. Literally. China. Ecuador. You name it. Her story is so good and her passion for her students shines through in all she does. A few weeks ago, Stephanie joined us at our first ever #GEGKY PD meet-up. It was so very clear, immediately, that Stephanie was not only a rock star teacher but also a respected leader among her peers. Friends. She does a lesson on the 5 themes of geography from the lens of a zombie apocalypse. Pardon me, but does it get any better that? The room went wild from her ideas!
Ladies and gents, it is my distinct honor to introduce you to my world traveling, #YES gal and **spoiler alert** guitar playing friend and #HCSinnovate teacher fellow: Stephanie Taylor.
