Spreading the education love…

In my own personal quest to read and learn about educational changes and share these with teachers in hopes they can enhance their students learning, I have come across some amazing educators.  These educators provide insight and ideas about education and student learning that I think goes a long way in improving this “space between teachers and students” – i.e. spreading the love of education to give those meaningful experiences to students.

I wanted to share a few of my favorite educators with you.  Creating a network of educators is one way to help all of us continue to spread the love of education to others, especially in this time of education bashing.  There are good things being done out there  and it is up to all of us to support those endeavors.

My list, in no particular order:

  1. Max Ray – The Max Ray Blog
  2. Vicki Davis (@coolcatteacher) – Cool Cat Teacher Blog

  1. Karen, thank you so much for including me in a list of educators who you see as a positive influence during difficult times in education! A couple of my favorites are on your list, so it is a special treat to be listed with them.

    I love the enriching the space between teachers and students idea which Jim wrote about and which inspired your post. It’s an honor to be seen as a contributor to that worthwhile endeavor.

    1. Sandy,
      My pleasure! I have enjoyed reading your tweets and blogs, so happy to share. I am still feeling new to this whole online social interaction world but realize that it is important to spread the word and facilitate connections as much as possible. I am amazed at how just a response here and there or a retweet or a “like” can expose others very quickly to new ideas and other people. It ‘s definitely fun to watch the connections spread.

  2. I am a bit late getting here (I have been so behind lately) but want to thank you for being a living example of the importance of building and sharing your PLN. Getting connected and sharing is such an important part of modern educational practice. It is an honor to be listed and included. Thank you. Looks like you have built a very nice blog here. Great work.
