“There’s a million things I haven’t done, just you wait.”

Share My Lesson is almost 2 million members strong—and you can be in the room where it happens

So, don’t throw away your shot at winning round-trip tickets to New York City to see Hamilton on Broadway!

Enter our Hamilton and the Big Apple Educator Sweepstakes and be entered to win one of three grand prizes to see Hamilton.

What better way to celebrate the kick off of the 2022-23 school year than with tickets to the Big Apple?

As part of Share My Lesson’s Summer of Learning 2022 series, we are thrilled to announce that we are going to choose three winners (and three companions) to fly to New York City this fall to see Hamilton at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. Yes, that's right—we're sending six people to see Hamilton.

When you got skin in the game, you stay in the game. But you don’t get a win unless you play in the game. Oh, you get love for it. You get hate for it. You get nothing if you … wait for it, wait for it, wait!

The Educators

There's nothing non-teachers love more
Than complaining about us while keeping us poor
They look at us in our classrooms writing with our chalk
And they throw criticism at us just so we don’t talk.

Take all the detractors, their complaints are loaded
Uh-oh, but little do they know
That their educators, teachers, support staff, admins
Don’t listen to the TV and instead they’re at—

Teachers!
(Work, work!) support staff!
And admins (work, work!)
The educators!
Teachers! support staff! admins! (Work!)

People said to do more by sundown
People don't even know
People said why are you so rundown?
Like I said, we're free to go

But look around, look around
Share My Lesson is sending you to New York (New York)
Teachers (work!)

It's bad enough people are at war.
Talking heads putting teachers in a square
It's bad enough educators are running far
No one coming up for any air

Look around, look around
Teachers, remind me what we're looking for
We're lookin' for you!

Support staff, I'm lookin' for support at work (work)
I'm lookin' for support at work (work)
I'm lookin' for support at work (work)
Whoa-ooh, whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-ooh, whoa-oh-oh (work!)

Whoo! There's nothin' like people being shifty
Officials in a rush and dictating to us by committee
Excuse me, teachers, I know it's not funny
But your CRT and books will cost you a lot of money

Why you carin' about armed teachers in schools with conceals?
Your teachin' is safe if we take away your ideals.

Man, you disgust me
Ah, so you've discussed me
I'm elected, baby, you can trust me

I've been reading Common Sense by Thomas Paine.
Some people say we're understaffed and underpaid.
You want a revolution? I want a revelation.
So listen to my declaration.

We hold these truths to be self-evident
that all professionals are created equal.
And when I meet the future voters (yes!)
I'm gonna compel them to include educators in the sequel. Work!

Look around, look around
At how lucky we are to survive the school year now.
Look around, look around
All they want to do is arm us now.

History is happening for 2 million
SML is sending you to the greatest city in the world
To the greatest city in the world!

'Cause I've been reading Common Sense by Thomas Paine (look around, look around)
Some people say we're understaffed and underpaid. (Share My Lesson is sending you to New York)
You want a revolution? I want a revelation (look around, look around, New York)
So listen to my declaration (it's happening)

We hold these truths to be self-evident (look around, look around)
That all professionals are created equal (and how lucky we are to survive the school year now)

Look around, look around
All they want to do is arm us now

History is happening for 2 million
SML is sending you to the greatest city in the world (to the greatest city)
To the greatest city in the world!

Teachers!
(Work, work!) Support staff!
And admins (Work, Work!)
The educators!
Teacher! Support Staff! Admins! (Work!)

We're looking for support at work! (Work, work!)
Hey! (Work, work!)
Hey! (Work, work! Whoa!)
Hey! (Work, work!)

To the greatest city (work! work!)
To the greatest city in the world
To the greatest city in the world!
