Who We Are
We're Kentucky educators from across the Commonwealth who want to facilitate authentic learning and growth opportunities to support our colleagues.
Any educator in Kentucky can join the conversation.
We elevate each other's ideas & resources in a spirit
of connection, collaboration, support & growth.
As schools & districts shuffled to create plans for reopening schools or converting to NTI, Kentucky teachers needed a voice & outlet for their insights, worries, and ideas. We hosted an EdChat on Twitter & a slow chat on Facebook in response to that need. Check out @BraveNewTeachKY or #BNTKY on Twitter to explore that conversation.
After a semester leading learning in difficult circumstances across the Commonwealth, we felt that the right response to the needs of Kentucky's educators was to focus on radical self care. We're not talking about hokey warm & fuzzies; we're talking about setting boundaries for ourselves, courageous conversations, trauma, mindfulness, and choosing joy.
So announcing Brave Teacher KY's inaugural podcast, Teacher Check In! Stay tuned for the first episode coming this November as we explore ways to #BeBraveBeWell.
