I'm launching my own 20Time project, as my students work on theirs. I'm collecting real stories from real teachers to publish into a free ebook.

There is so much value in our day-to-day lives as teachers, most of which is never seen by the general public and the media. My goal is to highlight the real successes and challenges, joys and heartbreaks, of being a teacher.

Submissions are open March 10 - May 1. Anticipated publish date is sometime in May.

And, please share!
