Why Did You Become a Teacher?
Ask educators why they went into teaching, and the majority will respond that they wanted to make a difference in the lives of young people. In this video, ASCD authors and leaders Robyn Jackson, Baruti Kafele, Doug Fisher, Jeffrey Benson, Michael Ford, Myron Dueck, and Eric Sheninger explain why they became educators.
Hear how ASCD authors Mark Barnes and Joan Young and ASCD Emerging Leaders Kevin Parr and Allison Rodman started their journeys to becoming educators in the summer 2014 episode of the Whole Child Podcast, "Believing in Students So They Believe in Themselves." And learn how other educators make a difference in students' lives and learning with the summer 2014 all-digital issue of ASCD's Educational Leadership magazine, available now.
