Wow creator. Inspiration producer. Difference maker. Miracle worker. Teacher. The Ohio Department of Education is encouraging the public to share stories about great educators.
The ODE recently announced a campaign that is designed to recognize how “Ohio’s teachers make a deep and profound impact on the lives of their students.”
Officials explained in a press release that the countless ways in which teachers make a difference form the foundation for a lifetime of learning and exploring.
They have launched the campaign to celebrate the individuals and teams who create, motivate and inspire.
Introducing the #OhioLovesTeachers campaign on Twitter and Instagram! Officials explain #OhioLovesTeachers brings educators to center stage and shines a spotlight on their work and the meaningful ways they are changing lives.
They note they want to hear from everyone — school and district leaders, parents, family members, fellow teachers, community members and, of course, students! To participate, simply share a picture with your story using #OhioLovesTeachers and tag @OHEducation on Twitter and Instagram. We will pick our favorites and reshare those stories with our statewide social media network of followers.
