Back to School: 7 Teacher Blogs to Follow and Learn From

3 years ago

Back to School time is here … already. While you're getting prepared, take a minute to celebrate the K-12 teachers and educators by following these blogs.

MOCHA MOMMA

Kelly Wickham was a panelist on the BlogHer '14 closing keynote about race, gender and the Internet and a Voices of the Year honoree in 2013. She blogs about all sorts of things, including her job as an assistant principal at a technology magnet school. If you're not familiar, start with her thought-provoking Intersections at Work: Race and Gender.

LOVE, TEACH

This funny and wise anonymous blog tells the story of teaching middle school English in a large city school, with everything from useful tips (5 Motivational Posters You Can Make for Your Home or Classroom, All While Consuming Hours of Your Favorite Guilty Pleasure TV Show Whose Name You’re Too Ashamed to Admit) to new teacher advice ("go ahead and put that Keurig in your classroom now. You'll need it.").

MAMA WOLFE

Jennifer Wolfe blogs about her family, striving toward her "best life," and why being a middle school teacher is her dream job—even after 24 years. Wow.

FEMINIST TEACHER

Ileana Jiménez is a New York high school teacher and recipient of the Distinguished Fulbright Award in Teaching. At Feminist Teacher, she writes about social justice in the classroom, teaching diversity and making schools safe, and bringing feminist theory from higher education to K-12 schools.

TEACHING SAM AND SCOUT

Elizabeth blogs about the high school classes she teaches, her faith and being a working mom, along with really excellent tips for classroom organization.

VODKAMOM

Debbie blogs about her family, preparing kids for school and the absolutely adorable first-graders she teaches. She was also a 2012 Voices of the Year honoree.

WE ARE TEACHERS

This huge site is way more than just a blog (in fact, it hosts several very good blogs)—it's really an all-in-one resource for any teacher, with blogs, news, printables, lessons, grant and contest opportunities, special reports, and pretty much anything else you can think of. If you're a teacher, you probably already follow We Are Teachers.
