Who, or what, was your inspiration to become a teacher?

Calling all teachers!

We want to give you and a colleague the chance to try out Planboard Plus for 6 months completely free! Planboard Plus is a new tool from Chalk.com that will be launching early in 2017. Planboard Plus allows you to easily share lesson planning ideas in Planboard and work with your fellow teachers to share planning duties. Redundancies are reduced so you can spend less time getting your classroom organized, and more time actually teaching your students.

Does one of your colleagues have fun and engaging learning activities you’d love to share with your students? Are you and your fellow same-subject teachers always discussing how to integrate the latest curriculum standards into your classroom? Planboard Plus will let you do all of this while on the go, or even in between periods when there is no time to connect with other teachers. Imagine exponentially growing your lesson planning power – all from your desk or mobile device!

All you need to do is tell us who, or what, was your inspiration in choosing to become an educator. Who knows, you could also be featured as a “Teacher of the Week” on the Chalk.com blog!
