TeachersCount and Tonic.com
TeachersCount and Tonic.com want to hear your story. Tonic.com
is a web outlet dedicated to promoting positive news stories from around the world. In our column, different teachers about his/her
experience, about what they do in their classroom and about themselves. The format is that of an informal interview — a dialogue in which the words of the
teacher are the complete focus. The subject matter may range from special programs or initiatives — be they extracurricular or purely academic — begun by the
teachers, to his/her life outside of the school: creative endeavors, stories about family, etc. If you are interested in being interviewed, email
email@example.com with your information and a short summary of your story. In
the meantime, check out Tonic.com
to read previous interviews.
