#160: Can Good Teaching Be Taught?
By Mark Isero • Issue #160 • View online
Hi Readers! I was a teacher for a long time, and have been an instructional coach for a long time, but never have I led a school. This week’s lead article — about how a principal tries to improve teaching at her school in Atlanta — gave me empathy for school leaders and the challenges they face. If you care about education, please take the time to read it.
HHH #7 was strong and robust! (At least Shannon and Lauren thought so.) We chatted about the articles, attendees got Highlighter folders, Jim won the grand prize, and I announced a special event coming soon. (The big reveal is next Thursday.) Mark your calendars: HHH #8 is Dec. 6!

Reader Highlights: Last week’s lead article — featuring teachers who got rich via Instagram and Teachers Pay Teachers — sparked strong reaction. Reader Erin @teacher_beasts wrote:
I consider myself the queen of the side gig. I work three jobs in addition to being a classroom teacher. However, I’m totally opposed to Teachers Pay Teachers because teachers shouldn’t have to pay teachers. Teachers shouldn’t have to work additional jobs, but some of those additional jobs are what keep me invigorated in the teaching profession.
