Teaching Matters is excited to announce a special series of podcasts with award-winning teachers who will share their personal stories about teaching excellence. The second program in this series is with Jitka Nelson, who was selected as the 2017 Indiana Teacher of the Year through a program of the Council of Chief State School Officials (CCSCO), which is the oldest and most prestigious national honors program focusing on teaching excellence. In this podcast, Jitka discusses the importance of student voice in an audio segment recorded by NWEA, the not-for-profit assessment solutions provider, who partners with the CCSCO on the National Teacher of the Year Program (segments from the other State Teacher of the Year Candidates are posted to teacherpodcasts.org).
