RateMyTeachers.com Newsletter #8

RateMyTeachers.com Newsletter #8
January 2005

The RateMyTeachers.com team wishes you a happy New Year and encourages you to set specific and challenging resolutions. The New Year is a time to reflect on our growth as we prepare for the road ahead.

We have come a long way since we launched this site in August 2001 and have much for which to be thankful and appreciative. This month we will reach our seven millionth teacher rating, and our database includes ratings for nearly one million teachers. We have served millions of students and teachers and continue to reach into classrooms across all parts of the US and Canada, and now the UK and Ireland.

We look forward to reading your ratings and comments for new teachers. To give you more space to express yourself, we have increased the space you have to leave comments. If your school has a moderator who reviews the ratings, you now have up to 512 characters to express you opinion. If your school does not yet have an admin, feel free to apply. Simply log on to your school’s page on RateMyTeachers and click the “Apply Here” link.

You may have noticed our banners for this cool place called The Island School, which is an academic semester abroad program in The Bahamas for high school sophomores and juniors. As an Island School student, you will work hard for 3 months during either the Fall or the Spring and challenge yourself academically, physically, and emotionally, finding out who you are by pushing past your limits. Scuba diving and kayaking connect you to the environment; community outreach builds bridges with local people, and the friends you make will shape you. Are you in 9th or 10th grade now? Apply by March 2005 for next school year at http://www.islandschool.org
