As I celebrate my ninth year as a first grade teacher and I look back at how much I have grown and changed over the years, I know that I owe much of my success to my mentors and other great teachers that I have worked with as well as a number of great teaching resources. During my student teaching experience, I was fortunate enough to work with a fantastic teacher, and it was during this time that I was first introduced to Scholastic Instructor magazine with its focus on sharing what is new and great in education.
Throughout the years, I have definitely grown and changed, and Scholastic Instructor magazine has grown and changed as well! And now, Scholastic Instructor magazine is celebrating a huge milestone--a relaunch as Scholastic Teacher!
In case you didn't know, Instructor magazine launched in October 1891 as Normal Instructor (teacher’s colleges were then called “normal schools”). In its 124-year history, the magazine has changed names five times! Here are a few more fun facts about how much this great magazine has changed over the years...
If you have a chance, I would highly recommend checking this fantastic teaching resource out! I personally have loved reading this month's articles "My Best Lesson Ever" and "Brilliant, But Bored." There are sooo many fantastic ideas shared within the pages of this wonderful resource! I can't get enough!
