What you do matters.

You may not hear it often (or ever), but if you’re an educator, you’re making a difference in the lives of learners. And that impact has a domino effect.

In Because of a Teacher, more than fifteen of today’s leading educators remember the teachers and administrators who inspired and supported their careers. Through a series of heartfelt and uplifting stories, they reflect on their early years teaching, offering advice and strategies suited to first-year teachers and longtime educators alike.

These personal stories offer hope for new teachers, encouragement for educators tiptoeing into burnout, and reassurance that the work you’re doing right now will inspire generations to come.

Because of a Teacher will inspire you to

  • remember those who encouraged your love of learning;

  • honor and thank educators who have advocated for you, championed your career, and equipped you with the skills necessary to lead;

  • reflect on how far you’ve come since you entered the profession.
