The past school year has been more challenging than any other, and “Rock Your School” provides an opportunity for educators, school administrators, and local communities to come together and celebrate education. Participants in “Rock Your School” can try something new in their curriculum or challenge themselves and their students in new ways knowing they are not alone, they are joining a community of teachers world-wide who are all stretching themselves to find new ways to engage their students.

Best-selling authors and highly acclaimed educators, Hope and Wade King, will lead professional development trainings with school leaders about how teachers can “rock their school” all year long. Hope and Wade, along with members of the Get Your Teach On team, will engage and entertain students at a school assembly and engage with participating schools around the world on social media.
