How has Relay helped you to become a more impactful teacher?

Relay has helped me become a more impactful teacher in the classroom by challenging me to take a deeper look at the student population that I serve. I have learned to adapt my lessons to reach the different types of learners in my classroom by using data to inform my instruction and make adjustments to allow for maximum student achievement. 

Do you have a favorite quote about teachers and/or education?

"A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning."
