Publisher's Note: The year 2013 was a great year here at The Educator's Room. We recruited more classroom teachers to write for our publication, launched our first Virtual 5K, interviewed teachers who were catapulted into the national spotlight by refusing to back down, started a Change.org petition to combat corporate reform and started using video chats to discuss issues in education. With over 1 million page views this year, over 15,000 Facebook "Likes" and thousands of Social Media Impressions we are confident that more teachers are indeed the experts in education. We are going to spend this week "running" the 15 articles that will help you transform your teaching!
