Story Corps, which collects peoples…stories, and which I suspect many of us listen to on NPR in the morning, has recently launched a National Teachers Initiative. Here’s how they describe it:

StoryCorps’ National Teachers Initiative will collect, preserve, and share stories that celebrate the impact of great educators on all of our lives. Focusing on the heroic work of teachers in classrooms across America, the National Teacher’s Initiative is a unifying project of profound importance, inclusive of all ethnicities, cultures, and ages. By focusing on the voices and stories of teachers, the National Teachers Initiative will underscore the influence of educators on our lives and our nation’s future.

To record your story, you need to visit either a permanent Story Corps location or one of their traveling ones. You can find those locations here.

Thanks to Cindy Johanson for the tip.
