Twitter is a great place to be for today’s educators. The variety of accounts to follow can be overwhelming: STEM ideas, early literacy activities, funding equity–you name it, there are people and organizations to inspire. Never fear, we’re here with a few recommendations from the people we trust for content. So consider this a double whammy: a look at the Twitter accounts @YumaEduSummit loves, plus an extra helping from those very same accounts.
Who to Follow
- @DaringToTeach Dr. Beth Maloney, 2014 Arizona Teacher of the Year: @MisterMinor Cornelius Minor, “a revolutionary teacher full of inspiration and experience.”
- @Almada_Mrs aka Mrs. A, 5th grade educator from East Providence, RI, who loves teaching and seeks to empower all students to love learning: @WeinsteinEdu, “Brad Weinstein’s tweets and retweets serve as a constant reminder of why we must value relationships over policies.”
- @TheMrsRandolph is our own Megan Randolph, middle school math teacher and Apple Distinguished Educator: @MathBeforeBed, “resources on their site that allow teachers to pull simple math problems to spark a mathematical discussion.
