Monthly Book Giveaways! As a special thank you to our subscribers, each month we will give away one or two autographed books by a wide range of authors and poets. Winners are picked randomly at the end of the giveaway.
Teaching is worthy and rewarding. By many measures, it is also the toughest ‒ and the most important ‒ job in America. To do it well, takes an ongoing and ever-fascinating conversation that engages the heart, mind, and spirit. We created the Teaching with Heart, Fire & Poetry website and blog to provide a space where teachers can share about their teaching and the teacher’s life.
The blog is modeled on our poetry books, Teaching with Fire, Leading from Within, and Teaching with Heart. In these books, teachers (and leaders) speak about who they are, why they do what they do, and how they keep their heart and commitment alive in their work and life. We asked teachers to reflect on these questions because we believe that what inspires and impassions teachers is worth sharing. Here are the many ways that you can join the conversation:
WRITE short blog posts about your work or life. We’ll work with you to create your blog post and to share it via Facebook and twitter.
SHARE reflections about your favorite poems – capture your thoughts in 250 words or less. These are modeled on the reflections in our three poetry books.
ANSWER the lively and thought-provoking “Teachers Talk” interview questions.
SUBSCRIBE to our blog and have one blog post each week delivered straight to your inbox. AND be automatically entered into monthly drawings for our Book Giveaways – a wide-range of autographed books. Have a book you’d like to add to our Giveaway program? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
THANK A TEACHER! We launched the Thank You, Teachers Project to create a wave of gratitude for teachers, one thank you letter at a time. Through this project, you can write thank you letters to your teachers that we will post on our Thank You Letter Gallery and on Pinterest.
SEND a thank you letter and an autographed copy of Teaching with Heart to a special teacher in your life. Teaching with Heart is written by teachers, for teachers. The perfect way to say thank you!
SUPPORT the website. Please help support our efforts to inspire, support and thank teachers. Managing the website and creating, editing, and sharing the blog posts takes a great deal of time. This is all done on a volunteer basis — so any and all support would be greatly appreciated!
