36: An Educator’s Anthem

If we put as much energy and emotion into cheering on our students as we do in supporting our favorite sports teams, we might be able to create a culture of joyful achievement that could completely change the trajectory of child’s life. It’s simple really… cheer for the individual that needs it most- our nation’s kids.


  • How can we go absolutely out of our minds crazy for NFL games but become as silent as a librarian in the classroom?
  • Its not really what we say that drives our students, its our enthusiasm behind what we say.
  • No matter if a student attends a low income or high income school, they deserve the opportunity to learn in a safe, inspiring space.

About the author, Gretchen

I am an educator of almost a decade, passionate about cultivating talent in aspiring and new teachers through practical tips and strategies. My blog, book, and podcast are geared towards empowering teachers to enter the profession and stay there due to the advice and encouragement I provide. We have a real need in our nation for strong leaders in classrooms, and I believe its my calling and duty to coach teachers to achieve and maintain best teaching practices in order to drive the growth and success of our students in and outside the classroom.
