About the Teachers' Voices Project
Teachers’ Voices is a special series designed to highlight the true professionalism of teachers in Southern Arizona. Produced by Arizona Public Media in partnership with Tucson Values Teachers, UA College of Education, and Cox Communications, Teachers’ Voices are 60 second television and radio spots that feature classroom teachers translating real world experiences into classroom lessons, and sharing teaching expertise, their passion for education, and stories of student achievement. From 2010-2012, Teachers’ Voices consisted of 2-3 minute radio segments airing on Arizona Spotlight, and modeled after the highly successful NPR StoryCorps. Visit theTeacher's Voices to watch and hear these stories.
