What is Spirare?

Developed by a team of educators from Butler University, Spirare: a Journal for and by Educators, is a peer reviewed publication that focuses on restoring a passion for teaching, and supporting educators at all levels.  It does not tell teachers how to teach, is not a collection of lesson plans or instructional strategies, but instead is a professional development tool aimed at the issues of heart and mind that teachers truly care about.  These are the often unseen or unspoken elements that flow through our teaching and often define our success and happiness.  Such things as finding and nurturing Trust in ourselves and others; Finding Your Voice; Building Community, are where we most profoundly live our professional lives.  The cross-platform interface aims at agency by helping educators arrive at their own answers through shared stories, quotes, video, audio, questions, and tools for finding and nurturing strength.  The submissions may not look like what is found in a typical journal, which is exactly their purpose, but they still represent rigor and depth.  Spirare is meant to evoke its Latin etymology of breathing and inspiration by feeling like more of a lifting up, than a weighing down.
