What makes an A+ teacher? That’s the subject of our upcoming series at the end of May.

We’ll be looking at such issues as how teachers are evaluated and whether it’s fair. We’ll be looking at teacher pay: If you pay teachers more, will they really be better teachers? We’ll be looking at whether good teaching is teachable.

But we also want to hear from you. You have a few weeks to send us your stories about your personal experiences with great teachers and your experiences with not-so-great teachers. For example:

  • If you’re a parent and your child had a bad teacher, what did you do about it?
  • If your child had a great teacher, was that teacher rewarded?
  • If you’re an administrator, how do you reward good teachers?
  • If you’re a teacher, what do you do to make yourself better?

We want to hear from you. Share your stories in the comments or email
