What makes a good teacher?
We believe teachers are more than educators; they are guides. Guides that help to unlock the full potential of a student’s mind regardless of their age, gender, race, or religious affiliation. Being able to effectively unlock a student’s potential takes more than what one may think. When it comes to teaching about sustainability and our environment, it takes a very special person who can not only adapt to a changing classroom, but also adapt to the individuals in the classroom, while at the same time motivating them, exciting them, and providing them with the skills they need to grow. Much too often these teachers go unnoticed while they do their job, even though the impact of their work will be experienced by all the people their students interact with throughout their careers and lives.
Here on RNN, we want to identify and congratulate those teachers that are helping to promote greener and more sustainable practices among their students. Every month we will profile a new teacher, while providing you, our guests, with educational resources that you are welcome to share with others, and broadcast the importance and impact of Green Teachers in our communities.
