About Edunators

Edunators is a website dedicated to helping teachers overcome the obstacles that prevent them from focusing on learning in the classroom. We take pride in oversimplifying the complex and discussing some of Education’s biggest ideas in a more conversational tone. Our articles, blogs and presentations are designed to inform, entertain and inspire professionals working in the field of education.

We know that teachers are among the most underappreciated and overworked professionals in the world. For this reason, it can be difficult to keep up with the latest big ideas in our profession. We know sometimes teachers don’t have time to read the latest and greatest books or educational research and we appreciate that teachers and administrators alike sometimes just want somebody to tell it to them straight. That’s where we come in, offering easy to  digest teaching strategies ranging from basic introductory material to more in-depth classroom ideas.

We also know that sometimes it’s much, much easier to be a bad teacher than it is to be a good one. There are a plethora of reasons why the teaching profession is under attack. Most of them are nonsense, but not all of them. So if we come off a little too blunt at times, it’s only because we know that every teacher went into this profession for the right reasons…they just sometimes forget what those reasons are. At Edunators, we are committed to reminding teachers of that starry-eyed optimism they entered the field with and showing them that all the dreams they had in their first day on the job are still achievable.  Sometimes though, the truth hurts, and it’s important to acknowledge that the road to “Becoming the Edunator” is long and full of potholes.

We welcome your comments, emails and other forms of feedback and look forward to hearing what you have to say about our work. If there is anything we can do to help you or your school district, please do not hesitate to ask.
