Summary

The impact a great teacher can have on a student is life changing—academically, personally and professionally. Yet, many of the best educators are not appropriately recognized for their extraordinary efforts. Only 39 percent of teachers are satisfied with their jobs—the lowest mark in 25 years. How can we elevate the profession to reflect teachers' inspiring and transformative impact on students? This session will explore research on sentiments toward teachers from parents, students and educators—and introduce Honored, a new nonprofit organization dedicated to celebrating great teachers.
