Ringing in a New Year is always a cause for celebration.

#MoveFor Learning Sweepstakes

As a teacher who is always on the move, comfortable and stylish footwear is essential. Nothing ruins a day faster than aching feet! I've always been a huge fan of Easy Spirit footwear, and I was thrilled when they contacted me to help them spread the word about their #MoveFor Learning campaign. It's very easy to stay motivated and excited about teaching when you're comfortable!

Easy Spirit's #MoveFor campaign celebrates the things that drive, compel, and inspire us on a daily basis. During the month of August, their #MoveFor campaign focuses on learning.

What do I #MoveFor? 

I am driven every single day to help my students be the best they can be. There's nothing I wouldn't do to keep my students enthusiastic about learning while they strive to reach their highest potential. One of the greatest feelings a teacher can have is when a former student comes back to visit, to let you know what an enormous impact you had on their life.

This is what I #MoveFor.
