An educator's primary job is to engage students in meaningful work that results in learning.
Educators not only help students in their state learn but can also assist in the education of students in our nation. Here is an article about a South Carolina teacher who was nominated by President Obama to be the assistant secretary of elementary and secondary education at the U.S. Department of Education.
Below is the link to a story that illustrates how a principal and fellow educators can encourage students to achieve more.
Educators are essential to children's ability to learn. When teaching children by engaging them in meaninful work, the results can last a life time. Not only are educators helping students learn, but by doing so they advance schools, communities, their state and even the nation.
Here is an article about a beloved teacher and principle that meaninfully engaged not only students, but the community as well.
I don’t know, maybe the role of educators IS to engage students, but I know – personally!! – that this can be tough when a student is suffering from malnutrition, has concerns about being accosted in the hallway after class, doesn’t know where s/he is sleeping tonight, etc. Maybe educators can OFFER engaging and meaningful work. . . . And, oh by the way, why does it need to be “work”? Don’t we offer engaging and meaningful learning activities? I’ve never (OK, “Never say never”) felt that education was work, it was fun!
This is so exciting to see collaboration and a common goal statewide!
Teachers are so crucial!
What are thoughts on how we can be more inclusive in this definition to recognize support staff who also work for this end? Instead of directly working with students in the classroom setting, support staff, like psychologists, social workers, or DO staff, may be working with teachers, administrators, parents, and specialists to help create conditions where engagement can be better realized.
Our roles do not seem to be reflected in the written vision.
Can't wait to dive into the material for educators.

teachers get students to work… that’s what we do at the hive!
