Q1: I hear a lot about teachers leaving the profession. Why did you choose to be an educator? Why do you stay? via @AKeithAllred1

Q2: Everyone says that relationships matter most. What is one thing you do to connect with your students? Why does it work? via @Makayla46612690

Q3: A lot of teachers seem tired all the time. How do you get ‘it’ (grading, planning, etc) all done? via @erdmann_jamie

Q4: Would you tell your own child to become a teacher? Why/Why not? #UTedChat

Q5: I want my students to listen and learn, but I’ve heard they won’t learn from teachers they don’t like. How do you gain respect as a teacher? via @meganr0013

Q6: What makes a ‘good day’ at school for you and your students? What do you do to get more of them? via @gracie26880510

I will be doing a face-to-face workshop at Utah State University this Thursday. I know most of you can’t attend the face-to-face workshop, so I’ve also put it online. It takes about an hour to go through.
Enjoy!
