The teachers and administrators who educate our children are incredibly good at what they do. They’ve shown the people at SINET so much about teaching; we want their voices to be heard by everyone with an interest in education
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) January 16, 2012
As of January 1, 2012, leading developer of PD for educators, School Improvement Network (SINET), is putting out a call for teachers and administrators anywhere in the world to get their voices out, to let their colleagues know about who they are and the important work they’re doing, and to contribute to the cause of improving schools. To do this, SINET is making its “School Improvement Blog,” along with its thousands of readers, available to educators with a passion for teaching and a message to send.
“As we travel, developing professional education videos, we visit educators in their classrooms and are always impressed by the level of dialogue we encounter,” says Curtis Linton, vice president of SINET. “Despite what some in the media might tell you, the teachers and administrators who educate our children are incredibly good at what they do. They’ve shown the people at SINET so much about teaching; we want their voices to be heard by everyone with an interest in education. Giving teachers access to post on our blog will enable them to influence and inspire thousands of others.”
And besides a national audience and the connections and conversations that writers and readers will create, SINET is also offering a free year’s subscription to Common Core 360, the industry’s premiere Common Core themed professional development platform for educators, to the blogger with the most comments in two weeks time.
“We’re establishing three general rules for blog submissions,” says Linton. First, be incredible. Write a compelling, instructional blog post of 350 to 800 words that generates conversation. Second, get your friends—and colleagues—involved. Tell all your friends about your post on Facebook and Twitter, and generate some conversation. Third, spread the word. You have something important to say, and we’re not the only people interested in hearing you. Post the link to your article on educational sites, news articles, forums, etc.”
