My 5 Favorite Education Blogs

Today I want to share with you my 5 favorite education blogs. Now, I’m not claiming that these are the best education blogs out there, but they ARE my favorites – the ones that I actually subscribe to or follow and enjoying reading and sharing.

Of course you know this doesn’t mean I agree with 100% of what these other bloggers say or endorse 100% of what they do or blah-blah-blah. You get the idea 🙂 But I DO think these are 5 great blogs that are worth checking out!

Check out these 5 great blogs for teachers

My 5 Favorite Education Blogs

  1. The Cornerstone for Teachers. This blog is my absolute favorite – the one I find myself agreeing with and sharing the most. It’s written by Angela Watson, who is also a Christian and a former teacher. Her articles are extremely practical, and she has a great heart to help and encourage teachers. You should definitely check out the blog & subscribe to her new newsletter.
     
  2. Corkboard Connections. Laura Candler has more than just great teaching resources – she has a great blog with lots of great information. My favorites are the ones that deal with classroom management, and I love the ones where she asks teachers for advice about a topic & then compiles it. She does share her resources a lot, which could be a pro or a con, depending on whether or not you’re interested in them. Either way, it’s an awesome blog.
     
  3. Cult of PedagogyI’ve been following Jennifer Gonzalez’s blog for maybe a month or two, and I have to say, I’m hooked. She has so much great information, especially about newer trends or current issues in education. Oh, and she’s got a podcast, too. I haven’t gotten around to listening to it yet, but it’s on my list to check out.
     
  4. Teaching Sam and Scout. I met Elizabeth (virtually) this past summer and immediately felt a connection. We are both Christians, teachers, and moms of toddler boys. Since then I’ve had a baby girl & she is currently expecting a baby girl – so, lots in common. The one big difference is that she is still teaching while I’m home with my kiddos. [We exchanged guest posts about the two different options. You can check them out here.] Anyhow, I really enjoy getting her posts in my inbox. Some of them are teaching-related. Others are more about being a mom or about what she’s wearing, or whatever else is happening in her life. So if you want a blog that is solely about teaching, this isn’t the one for you. But if you enjoy a bit of a mish-mash of fun, helpful posts, then you’ll want to check her out.
     
  5. Pursuit of a Joyful Life. Okay, so all of the other blogs, I know the author of. (Okay, know is maybe not quite the best word – I correspond with all of them online.) But I don’t know Lori, aside from reading her posts. But I have to say, she is an excellent writer. Like Teaching Sam and Scout, Pursuit of a Joyful Life is not solely about teaching. She also writes about being a mom or other issues she is facing in her life. The best word I can use to describe her writing is poetic. There’s just something about the way she says things….
