Introducing the JCPSForward Blog Series!

Created in July 2015, JCPSForward has become a strategic, intentional teacher-led effort to identify and connect the educators in JCPS that are deeply impacting teaching and learning. In 2 years, JCPSForward has helped bring Twitter chats (#JCPSchat), the #ECET2Lou conference, and EdCampJCPS to the district in order to connect, engage and inspire educators in Louisville.

The newly created JCPSForward blog series is another step in the teacher-led movement to inspire, connect and spark conversation among our district’s educators. Over the next 6 months, there will be new posts added to the JCPSForward blog every 2-3 days by the 9 inaugural JCPSForward bloggers. They will be blogging about topics that are in the forefront of education and our district…anything from the new science standards, to teacher self-care, to cultural competency and everything in between.

The #ForwardBloggers are:

  • Rachel Klein--7th Grade ELA Teacher, Meyzeek Middle School
  • Donna Neary–ESL Teacher, Iroquois High School
  • Jazmine Anderson--9th/10th Grade ELA Teacher, Butler Traditional High School
  • Chelsea Haynes–6th Grade Science Teacher, Newburgh Middle School
  • Shannon Stone–Goal Clarity Coach, Johnsontown Road Elementary School
  • Jodi Meier–ECE Teacher, Breckinridge/Franklin Elementary School
  • Randi Skaggs–6th Grade ELA Teacher, Farnsley Middle School
  • Marcia Carmichael-Murphy–Resource Teacher, Fern Creek High School
  • Bryan Morrison–5th Grade Teacher, Watson Lane Elementary School
