As part of the campaign, teachers created thought bubbles that explain what they love about teaching and photos are posted in online galleries at http://ggusdwhyiteach.weebly.com. Teachers’ thought bubbles and stories are shared on the district’s Facebook and Twitter pages using the hashtags #WhyITeach and #GGUSDPRIDE.
“We love our teachers; their passion, drive and never-ending desire to support and care for students is what makes GGUSD such a special place,” said Teri Rocco, Garden Grove Board of Education trustee. “The #WhyITeach campaign is just one way that we can honor the work they do and the countless hours they invest to equip our students with the knowledge and skills to make the world a better place.”
The #WhyITeach initiative has been implemented at school districts across the nation capitalizing on the power of social media to recognize those who have dedicated their careers to children. GGUSD’s #WhyITeach campaign will run through the end of February and already, hundreds of teachers have participated.
The campaign aims to showcase to the community the teachers who make a difference each and every day in the lives of more than 45,000 students. The community is encouraged to get engaged in the campaign by sharing stories of their favorite teachers on the district’s Facebook and Twitter pages using #WhyITeach and #GGUSDPRIDE.
