Annie Platt, Social Studies Teacher, from US
"It is so exciting to see the transformation that takes place in students as they are invited into the exploration of the big questions of philosophy and history. It is my pleasure to watch students, who at first lacked confidence to say anything, begin to express their thoughts and opinions in class discussions."
McKenzie Evans, English Language Arts Teacher, from US
"I became a teacher because I wanted to work with students during a time when they form their identity. I want to work with students as they become critical thinkers, and reflect on who they are as well as what they can contribute to the world. The world is broken in many ways, but it is also beautiful. I want to prepare students to survive in the brokenness of the world, and to thrive in its beauty. In my mind, there is no better way to do this than through literature. "
