Teacher Beat Welcomes a New Guestblogger!


My apologies for not posting yesterday, but I return with exciting news to make up for it: A new guestblogger, Liana Heitin, will be helping me out on blogging duties and making sure that not a morsel of teacher-policy news falls through the cracks!

Some of our readers will know Liana from her work at sister publication Teacher Magazine but she also brings some great on-the-ground experience, too: she was a Teach for America teacher in Phoenix before turning to edu-journalism.

Why not take this opportunity to add Teacher Beat to your RSS feed so you won't miss any of her great posts?

Welcome, Liana!


Just out of curiosity, how many years did Liana spend in the classroom as a teacher?

Hi Clay,
I was in the public school classroom as a special education teacher for two years. Prior to that, I taught students with special needs for two years at a private reading clinic. Let me know if you have other questions.
