What makes a good teacher good?

On Aug. 27, Rafe Esquith joins KPCC education reporter Mary Plummer at the Crawford Family Forum to discuss his latest book, Real Talk for Real Teachers, advice for teachers—from rookies to veterans. 

This made us wonder: What makes a teacher stand out? 

Please take a moment to share your understanding of what makes a teacher special. And, if you're a teacher, please submit any questions you may have for Esquith, who is best known for his book Teach Like Your Hair's on Fire

We'll read every submission, and nothing is published without your permission.

The program is at capacity, but you can watch it live here.
