Teachers on Harnessing the Power of Students, Parents, and Communities in the Classroom

October 13, 2016

The Fishman Prize for Superlative Classroom Practice recognizes 100 inspiring public school teachers each year, and celebrates four winners who are making a profound difference for their students and schools. Winners participate in a thought-provoking summer residency with their peers, reflecting and writing about the issues facing their profession—and how they’re tackling them in their classrooms. Each winner also receives a $25,000 award.

In Lift Every Voice: Teachers on Harnessing the Power of Students, Parents, and Communities in the Classroom, the 2016 winners reflect on the relationships they build with students, families, and communities—and how those relationships inform what and how they teach. From New York City to rural Louisiana, these teachers are united by their belief that strong relationships produce stronger results in the classroom.

The Fishman Prize essays are windows into classrooms where lives are changing every day. We're hoping this year they can also be the start of a conversation about how classrooms become places where lives are changed.

We want to hear from you: How have relationships made your school a better place to learn?
