In this episode, author and former educator, Caroline Lewis, talks about the three pillars that make successful public schools. Caroline’s book, Just Back Off and Let Us Teach, calls on effective teachers to do their parts to make the profession noble again, to seize opportunities to elevate teaching, and to recognize their ability to impact learning and learners. She honors the best teachers as heroes–and we talk candidly in this show about what “great teaching” really looks and feels like.
