The Guardian US is launching a new project about teachers. Tell us your stories about teaching in America
Help teachers get their voices heard
The Guardians teacher series will put a spotlight on the wave of teacher activism sweeping the country and the crisis in Americas classrooms.
If youre a K-12 public school teacher or educator, we want your input.
- Whats the biggest challenge you face as a public school teacher in America? Are your school facilities and textbooks adequate? Have you had to buy your own classroom supplies? Do you struggle financially on your salary? Do your students ever come to school hungry?
- Send us photos and videos of problems with your classrooms and schools: old textbooks, peeling paint, overcrowded classrooms, outdated technology, snacks for students that you had to buy yourself, etc.
- Have you taken part in any activism? What were your reasons for getting involved?
How to get in touch
Tell us about your experiences in the form below. You dont need to answer all of the questions.
Well post some of the photos, stories and videos on the Guardian when the project launches. Please specify if you dont want your comments published. A Guardian journalist may be in touch with you.
Please share this post with your teacher friends and networks.
If you enjoyed our content, we'd really appreciate some "love" with a share or two.
And ... Don't forget to have fun!
