I grew up on Reading Rainbow, as many of you might have.
LeVar Burton’s tag line, introducing the kid book review segment of the show, echoed in my head as I figured out how to show off the many incredible educators and education thinkers I have the privilege of knowing. I’d like to start dedicating summer posts to their voices.
My hope is to both cajole guest posts out of them and conduct “interviews” over email, which I will post in their entirety on the blog.
Shortly, then, my inaugural guest post on the controversial Teach For America program from Sarah Cannon, former TFA teacher and current Ph.D. candidate in education.
