Teachers today face a range of complex challenges, from seemingly impossible student-progress goals to ever-shifting instructional mandates to a general lack of resources and support. Is it really possible for anyone to flourish in this environment?

Meenoo Rami, author of the recently published Thrive: 5 Ways to (Re)Invigorate Your Teaching, believes it is. In this chat, Rami took your questions on navigating and energizing your career as a teacher. She discussed ways to build empowering relationships and networks, stay true to your values, and instill your own and your students’ work with passion and intellectual vitality.
