Educators have always been local heroes. They inspire, lead, and of course, teach. And while the coronavirus pandemic has taken its toll, logistically and mentally, on all of us, teachers and school staff have shined despite incredible obstacles.

At NEWS CENTER Maine, we’re celebrating and honoring school staff and teachers by teaming up with the Maine Department of Education to share their stories and highlight their inspiring efforts to keep Maine kids learning in the face of a pandemic.

Valentine’s Day kicks of #LoveTeaching week, a grassroots campaign started in 2015 by teachers to celebrate teaching, leading, and learning in a way that unites and invigorates educators. But amid the pandemic, we thought just one week wasn’t enough, so we expanded the idea to create #LoveSchoolStaff week for the previous week, Feb. 7-13.

Send us pictures and videos to share what they mean to you and your kids by:

  • Sharing them using the Near ME tool of our mobile app
  • Texting us at 207-828-6622
  • Posting them on social media and using the hashtag #LoveTeaching

Your video could make it online or on TV. We ask that your please shoot your videos horizontally.

In a year when it’s needed more than ever, join us in saying thank you to the amazing educators of Maine.

Stay tuned throughout the week for more stories.
