Want ExtraCredit? Visit our blog

2/1/2019

Do you know about the Ohio Department of Education’s blog, ExtraCredit? It’s a compilation of musings and observations by guest bloggers – teachers and leaders from the field—and sometimes Department leaders and staff. When you visit, you’ll read stories about what your colleagues have learned from their lives and careers. You’ll learn about serious challenges, team efforts and successes that will inspire you. You’ll also see photos and short observations from state Superintendent Paolo DeMaria’s many visits to schools.
 
Posts by Department staff will help you better understand some major education initiatives and get to know them on a more personal level.
 
May we suggest that you start with the January 4 blog by Jonathan Juravich, 2018 Ohio Teacher of the Year? Jonathan clearly loves and believes in teachers and teaching.
 
By the way, ExtraCredit needs even more teachers’ voices. If you want to write a post for the blog, email Amber Schneider in our Office of Communications and Outreach to talk about your idea.
