Most teachers receive far less practical support than they need--and deserve. Read my Teacher Magazine blog, Coach G's Teaching Tips, for real solutions to real problems--how-to as well as how-not-to--based on a combined 18 years as a public school teacher, instructional coach, administrator, and adjunct education instructor; and many years in business before that.   (my professional blog) (writer's workshop blog for my junior/intermediate students)


I am a K-12 social studies consultant, former classroom teacher of 12 years, and tech enthusiast.  I am the lead blogger at where I share a variety of resources such as videos, free lessons, tips and pointers on instructional strategies, and my pathetic attempts at humor.
I teach sixth grade in northern California and blog mainly about teaching and learning, for my students and for me.  Integrating technology is one of my interests and finally, I feel like I'm doing it well.  You can find me at

I am policy director for the New Teacher Center, a national non-profit dedicated to improving student learning by accelerating the effectiveness of teachers and school leaders. NTC strengthens school communities through proven mentoring and professional development programs, online learning environments, policy advocacy, and essential research.


My personal blog is The Education Optimists.

My blog is about how schools can better choose, organize and run fundraisers in order to create more success and ultimately, less fundraising.

It's all about fundraising less but more effectively.  This blog is also a great place for me to explore my interest in #edtech, #edreform and the future of learning.

Hope you like it!

I'm am a middle school Principal in New Jersey.  Our school is located in a semi-rural / suburban area.  We have about 400 student in grades 5 - 8.


My blog is:


I use the blog to provide some personal reflection and school news.

I am a 5th grade teacher who has been teaching for over 26 years. My blog, "Diary of a Public School Teacher" focuses on all aspects of education. It's not research-based, it's based on my classroom experiences. I discuss teaching, integrating technology, classroom management, etc...

I am the computer teacher and technology coordinator in a K-8 private school in Northeast Ohio.  My blog contains questions, answers, ideas, suggestions, classroom excitement, and the day-to-day trials of teaching.  Most recently, administrators decided to add an additional lab in my school along with 30 iPads.


I love teaching and learning! I am currently pursuing a Pre-K to 3 licensure and an Ed Tech (multi-age) endorsement.


I am also interested in relocating to a sunny climate!  But, my daughter is now entering her senior year in high school and those plans will have to wait.


I try to keep 2 blogs running, both containing the same content.


Feel free to comment on anything.  I love suggestions, too.
