Teachers can work to improve their own teaching by bringing in guests to observe the classroom or videotaping lessons, writes Jessica Cuthbertson, a teacherpreneur who teaches sixth-grade literacy. In this commentary, she advises teachers to explore bringing guests into the classroom -- either on a small scale or through visits from instructional coaches, parents, local leaders and others. She also recommends applying for National Board Certification, which she said has helped her "identify the professional-learning experiences that have made me a better teacher."
