Lessons from Educator Leaders

from our educator leaders

“Working with other educators stretches my thinking and this is when my students find ultimate success.
- Lindsay T.
TEACHER AT FORT OSAGE SCHOOL, INDEPENDENCE, MO
“Empowering students with an outlet for writing like this one would be a game changer. My students have stories. Their lives are rich with experiences that sometimes only become real when they have been shared. I want to use 826 to amplify the movement for justice, creativity, and writing for kids.
- Kathy S.
TEACHER AT ROBBINSDALE AREA SCHOOLS, NEW HOPE, MN
“I use 826 Digital in my classroom all the time! I love the lessons and prompts that incorporate SEL and use them to build relationships with my students.
- Mallory M.
TEACHER AT ALLEGAN PUBLIC SCHOOLS, ALLEGAN, MI
