As educators, we provide knowledge by sharing stories. But the process of teaching yields some of the greatest stories of all. We'd like to invite you to share your story about how public media has had a positive impact in the classroom.

PBS LearningMedia really supports my teaching. For example, when I was doing my states of matter unit, most of the times I only use water as an example because it’s easy to use, the materials are in my lab, but what happened is that many of my students started to think that water was the only form of liquid state of matter. I liked the fact that when I went on to PBS LearningMedia I was able to find a video that took my students outside of the classroom. They’re able to show them other examples that I did not have the materials in my class.
