Chris Goering of the University of Arkansas is a partner with Jason Endacott in writing a blog called EduSanity. I was happy to discover there are warriors for educational sanity at the U. Of A.

Inspired by Peter Smagorinsky of the University of Georgia, they have launched a series called “Awesome Teachers of Arkansas.” This post features teacher Heather Thompson, who teaches high school English and the arts in Bentonville.

What a lovely way to celebrate teachers!

Peter Smagorinsky began writing about the “Great Teachers of Georgia” in 2012. Here is one of his posts, featuring Bynikini Frazier, a first-grade teacher in the Savannah-Chatham Public Schools.

Great teachers deserve to be recognized and honored.

Are there awesome teachers in your state? Tell the world.
