Share Your Story

Teachers have the best stories—from amazing mentors and innovative projects to student lightbulb moments. Share your experience with a short video or article. Our editors will help you make your story shine and feature it on our site! Read below for upcoming opportunities.

On September 21, TEACH Colorado will kick off our annual Hispanic Heritage Month campaign. Each year, we honor the stories of educators with Spanish, Mexican, Caribbean, Central American and South American heritage who bring vision and leadership to their schools across the U.S.

Of course, 2020 is no ordinary year. This year, Hispanic Heritage Month is situated in the larger context of calls for racial justice and a global pandemic that has hit Hispanic communities especially hard. Teachers—especially Hispanic teachers, Latinx, Black, indigenous, and immigrant teachers—stand at the intersection of these historic events. And this is where we hope our story campaign will shine a light.

Tell us your story Submit a story or sign up to be interviewed. Our team of editors will work with you to make it shine, publish it, and put it out in the world.

We are especially interested in stories from current and future teachers that reflect the following themes (but if you have another idea, please pitch it to us!)

  • The immigrant experience is deeply American, and teachers, school leaders and school curriculum should all reflect that experience.
  • Bilingual education and English Language Learner programs support educational equity and justice. 
  • Culturally responsive pedagogy supports educational equity and justice. 

How to participate

Contact us:  Email col@teach.org and let us know if you would like to:

  1. Draft an article or story—500-800 words—and work with our editors to publish it; OR
  2. Be interviewed by a writer who can draft your story.

Compensation

We want to honor your time and your story. We pay the following fees to our contributors:

  • $50 for an interview article
  • $75 for a submitted article that we edit and publish
  • $100 for multimedia contributions (articles with video, video blogs, etc) 

* Submit stories, videos, photos, and questions to col@teach.org*

How we’ll use your contribution

If we select your story, we will publish it on our web platform and celebrate it on social media during Hispanic Heritage Month (9/15-10/15). We may share your story on our website, on our social media channels, in email or in other digital outreach. We have campaigns and opportunities for teacher contributions all year long. If we think your story is a fit for another campaign, we’ll let you know!

    Changing lives isn’t easy, but it’s critical work. Join forces with TEACH Colorado to share your teaching victories and spread the message—teaching is a profession that shapes lives and communities. 

    The Better Work Stories campaign promotes real stories about real teachers making an impact in the classroom. We're collecting videos and stories by Colorado teachers that highlight the impact of educators.

    We’ll feature these stories on our social channels, site or our Better Work Stories page.

    • Grab any device with a camera.
    • Record a short video telling about your best teaching win! (It's easy! Here's some advice.)

    • Post your video or written story on social and tag @TEACHColorado using the #bwsCO hashtag.
