Think of your favorite teachers. What made them special? We posed that question to Minnesota Public Radio listeners and got heartfelt responses from teachers, students, parents and others across Minnesota and western Wisconsin.
Now letís turn this into a national conversation about teacher quality.
Read the responses on the maps, then take five minutes and share a story about your teachers. Tell us about the ones you loved -- and the ones who came up short.
The maps will grow with your responses. Youíll help spread the discussion across the country.
