Great teachers change lives. Many of us recall one teacher who sparked our interest in a subject or changed the way we thought about the world. Parents want to see their children come home from school excited about learning.
On a broader level, research validates these individual experiences. Studies show the quality of a teacher has a significant impact on student learning, greater than family income, class size or school location.
