Legendary Teacher Day is Thursday, September 23, 2021.

Big picture

The first step in celebrating a legendary teacher is to reflect on your education. With the three tenets of a legendary teacher in mind:

  • Building relationships
  • Engaging deeply with students
  • Creating high expectations

Reflect on your teachers who pushed you. Reflect on your teachers who held you accountable. And, reflect on your teachers who went above and beyond and invested in your personal success. At this point, you have likely identified a number of your teachers over the years who have collectively contributed to your academic success.

Now, how do you act on your desire to recognize your personal teaching legend?

Active - If your legendary teacher is currently teaching, reach out to them personally. Be sure to cite the specific reason that they are your legend.

Inactive or Retired – Send your tribute to the principal of the school where your legendary teacher influenced you.

In all of these scenarios, you are encouraged to post your legendary teacher tribute on social media. Be sure to include the all important #legendaryteacher in your posting.
