Why Do Teachers Quit?

Why Do Teachers Quit?

Due to an overwhelming number of off-topic article submissions and just overall time constraints from my own busy schedule, I have scaled back the number of guest posts I will do on my blog quite drastically. Nevertheless, high quality articles will be given consideration. Below is some information that will help give you the best chance to get an article published.

Thank you!
First of all, I want to thank you for your interest in writing an article to be featured on So You Want To Teach? As you may or may not know, SYWTT has been on the scene (at the current site) since June 2007, with articles dating back to February 2007. As of June 7, 2012, the blog has over:

2,000 RSS subscribers
1,800Twitter Followers
700 Facebook Fans

All this is to say that your article will potentially directly reach in excess of 3,000 educators, many of whom will pass the information along to others in their network. So with all of that out of the way, what kinds of things am I looking for?

Bio
Your bio will be at the beginning of the article and will look something like this:

Joel is a band director from Texas who is about to begin his 9th year as a professional educator. He writes about teaching at SoYouWantToTeach.com. Follow him on Twitter at @sywtt or become a Facebook fan.

I’m really not all that concerned with how many links you include or how much information, as long as you’re linking to legit sites.

Gravatar
The icon at the top of each article is based on your email address. If you have not yet set up a Gravatar, it will display the dreaded generic Question Mark icon , and nobody wants that! So hop on over and set it up at your convenience. www.gravatar.com

Graphic
Each article on the blog has an accompanying image. If you want to include a specific one (please ensure copyright permission), feel free. Otherwise, I will find one from stock.xchng‘s amazing assortment of royalty free images.

Length
The article can be as long as you feel is appropriate. If you want to break longer articles up into smaller chunks, that’s fine. Or just send one big huge thing. It would be nice if it’s at least two paragraphs. :)
