For Teacher Appreciation Week this year, we wanted to hear how teachers not only inspire their students, but also how they inspire other educators. We asked professional developers everywhere to share how teachers have inspired them. To make it even more exciting, whoever received the most shares or retweets would win a brand new iPad!

TAW Giveaway Winner - MeMe RatliffWe are proud to announce that the winner of the giveaway is MeMe Ratliff. MeMe Ratliff works for Jefferson County Public Schools and has been a Learning Forward member since 2015. From all of us at Learning Forward, we want to thank you for participating in our first Teacher Appreciation Week giveaway and for your continued support.


While there were too many great inspirations to share here, take a look at some of the ones that stood out to our staff:
