Why teach? Educators today are under more pressure than ever before. Standards are changing, schools are growing, and the pay isn’t getting any better. Even so, talented and passionate individuals are still pursuing the profession, and veteran educators continue their work despite all the challenges.
Next Wednesday, Feb. 25, The Seattle Times – Education Lab, in partnership with the University of Washington College of Education and 88.5 KPLU, will present a teacher storytelling event on the University of Washington campus in Seattle.
The evening begins with an informal welcome reception with light refreshments from 6:30 to 7 p.m. outside Kane Hall room 220. Storytelling starts inside the auditorium at 7 p.m.
The program will be the third storytelling event organized by Education Lab. The first two events focused on students who had overcome obstacles to get to college. This time, five local teachers will share short personal stories about what led them to education, and what’s kept them going.More
