Periodic Table of Teaching - #TeachersMatter

This is going to be an awesome opportunity to harness the power of our professional learning networks to create something that (to the best of my knowledge) has never been created before. If it has, I cannot find it and that includes an hour or two of searching the mother ship of all things created for education....Pinterest.

The first full week of May is Teacher Appreciation Week, which means for the last month or so, our PTA and I have been collaborating on ideas and searching for suggestions. One idea we came up with was harnessing the power of social media and my PLN to create the Periodic Table of Teaching, because as you know #TeachersMatter. Get table?

We have started a list and have come up with an impressive list in my opinion, but we need your help. Can you help us develop a Periodic Table of Teaching?

Use the link below to add your thoughts and suggestions to what terms, character traits or words can be used to describe teachers that will reflect the periodic table, seen above. For example Sn may stand for sensitive. The goal would be to come up with a different term, trait or word for each element.

I am excited to see us collectively harness the power of social media to create this powerful reminder that #TeachersMatter.
