Celebrate Why You #LoveTeaching

Washington, D.C. (February 9, 2015) -- We all remember a special teacher who coached us, encouraged us, inspired us. As we near Valentine's Day, let's take a moment to share the love!  

Please join the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) this week as we support teachers across the nation who are taking to blogs, social media, and other avenues to show why they #LoveTeaching. This new campaign was created by State and National Teachers of the Year, including 2014 National Teacher of the Year Sean McComb.

You can join in this effort and help shine a light on all the good that teaching offers by sharing your personal story!

  • What made your favorite teacher so special?
  • Why should young people consider teaching as a profession?
  • How has a teacher made a difference for your child?

To learn more about the #LoveTeaching campaign and how you can participate or encourage others to join, watch this short video or visit:
