What is “The 30 Days of Teachers.Net”?

June is a very special month for educators.  It is a time of transition – semesters are ending, summer is beginning.  It is a time for goodbyes, and new beginnings.  For some it’s just a quick breath and back to year-round classes, others will travel far and wide, bringing new stories and ideas to enrich their craft in the new school year.

So why The 30 Days of Teachers.Net?

As you may know, Teachers.Net is the Internet website built by teachers. for teachers, and about teachers.  Every bit and byte of this website was created by teachers, every twist and turn in our development was the result of your input and demand.  For over a decade, Teachers.Net has been a grand experiment in teacher community, and the result is a massive repository of features, resources, and content.

It is a time to relax, to learn, to share.  It is your time, and we celebrate with you every step.

The credit is all yours – you created this website, and all its content.  And because your efforts deserve full acclaim and recognition, we at Teachers.Net have dedicated the month of June to telling your colleagues all about your website, and your work.

Every day, for the next 30 days, we will announce a teacher feature from the Teachers.Net website!We’ve been busy recently, with a series of improvements to Teachers.Net, that will help you with your teaching.  So take a moment each day to note the tip for that day – visit the resource if you can, and make use of or participate in that resource if you can.  Remember, through your participation this community has grown to become the largest and most active, and we think the most helpful teacher community online.

Please forward any of these messages to your colleagues who may not know about Teachers.Net.  Every voice and view we add, makes your teacher community more powerful.

Thank you for supporting your Teachers.Net, I look forward to seeing you online!

This collaborative project was founded in 2000, and has provided a venue for teachers just like you, to publish their work before their teacher colleagues, and share great teaching ideas and stories.

Anyone can submit to the Teachers.Net Gazette. We publish everything from peer-reviewed education studies to anecdotes of life in the classroom. If you’d like to contribute, click this link for complete details:

The Teachers.Net Gazette is published monthly, and we now feature a large archive of offerings from renowned voices like Harry Wong and Howard Gardner, as well as your teacher colleagues from across Teachers.Net.

We hope you enjoy this month’s Gazette. If you run across Kathleen Carpenter on Teachers.Net, feel free to tell her you enjoyed her work; she’s invested untold hours editing your articles and stories since the start of the Gazette in year 2000.

I hope to see your work published in a future Teachers.Net Gazette – please tell a friend!

Once you set up your Gravatar, every time you supply your email address to a Gravatar-enabled system, your custom avatar is instantly embedded right into the post.

Why would I want to include an avatar when I post?

But when you create an avatar, people see your face each time you post (or a cartoon you select, an animal, or any picture you like). This lets people easily remember you, and helps you to build authenticity in a world of anonymous bits and bytes.

But what about my privacy?
With Gravatars, your privacy is completely protected. Nobody can see your email address (it’s scrambled with a
