July Resource Round-Up: Celebrating Great Teachers

Every summer, we promise to take a moment for ourselves, after clearing out classrooms and saying goodbyes, before thinking ahead to the next school year. You might have already dove headfirst into professional development or planning. But before you get too wrapped up in preparations, we wanted to invite you to join us in celebrating great teachers!

(In case you had any doubts, that means YOU!!)

While we usually start the month with a resource round-up to help you prepare to head back into the classroom, we decided it was more important to remind you of how amazing you are and celebrate your accomplishments. Enjoy a few good stories and heartfelt messages dedicated to phenomenal teachers like you, and thank you for all you do. ❤️
