Meet Our Featured Teachers

 

At MyDisneyClass,, we value teachers as professionals by recognizing their contributions, giving them autonomy to make the decisions that are best for students, and investing in their growth and development. One way we encourage teachers to grow is by observing and learning from teachers who have seen success in their own classrooms.

 

Our Featured Teachers, reflect a deep understanding of planning and content knowledge that allows us to share and take a glimpse into both the classrooms and mindsets of some of the most talented and dedicated educators.
