Sharing your Mississippi education stories
As we look to the future and determine what shape MAE’s advocacy work will take, we know that — regardless of the specific nature of those efforts — it remains imperative we collect your stories and continue to raise up the voice of Mississippi’s educators.
To that end, we’ve decided to take a more active role in collecting your stories. Using an app called Storyvine, we’ll now be able to efficiently and meaningfully capture your experiences in the classroom and package your responses in short videos. All we need in return is for you to share your perspective on several critical questions:
1) What challenges do you face as a result of a lack of resources? (Impact of low salaries on teacher recruitment/retention, classroom supplies, textbooks, dilapidated buildings, technology, connectivity, student mental health, etc.)
2) What kinds of resources would help the most?
3) If you had an opportunity to talk to state leaders and lawmakers, what would you want them to know?
It’s that easy! You’ll simply visit this link to register as a user and the steps below will guide you from there. Thank you for participating! Your stories will help decisionmakers better understand what’s at stake in our classrooms and for the future of our state.
