Thank An Educator

Through virtual and in-person classrooms across the country, educators of all types have been working tirelessly to adapt to our collective new normal, supporting and teaching students of all ages and needs. It hasn’t been easy, but educators have continued to change millions of lives every day. StoryCorps wants to help #ThankAnEducator.

Honor an educator in your life with a StoryCorps interview and show them just how much they mean to you.

Tools for recording stories

Our self-directed recording tools allow anyone to record a meaningful conversation with a friend, mentor, or loved one – in person or remotely. After your interview, you’ll have the option to add your recording to StoryCorps’ archive at the Library of Congress for future generations to listen to and learn from.

StoryCorps Connect makes it easy to record a conversation remotely.
You can also record in person with the free StoryCorps App.
