Stuck: When Students and Teachers Need Inspiration

This conversation will ask educators to share what keeps them motivated, and will provide a framework to help them encourage peers to push through burnout. Educators from grade school to university are encumbered by external factors and, too often, quit. Though measuring results often takes priority, quantitative experiences don't develop the whole student - or teacher. Perhaps prioritizing meaningful moments can keep teachers energized and, ultimately, make the most difference for students.
