The Educator’s Room is the first community-driven content platform focused on amplifying teachers’ voices to inform, entertain, and engage educators around the world.
The mission of The Educator’s Room and our subsidies are to construct a community of education professionals that is affirming, amplifying, and inspiring and to use our collective expertise to have a positive, lasting impact on education
To amplify and honor educators’ voices as experts in education.
Our work is simple:
-Through articles and social media, we will inform the work that’s happening in schools by having honest dialogue with educators about how to improve public education.
-Through our diverse media options (podcasts, talk shows, books, and more) we will engage educators in the work that binds us in the work of serving students and the community.
-We are a network of educators who engage in events focused on the mental health of educators through research, events, and timely discussions with our community.
Our Core Beliefs
- Teachers are the experts, and Teachers lead the Educator’s Room.
- We must center teachers and students to think about preventing teacher burnout and the impending shortage of high-quality teachers.
- As an organization, we will embrace controversial topics.
- We will honor the lived experience of traditionally minoritized groups and create space for #ownvoice narratives in our work.
- In order for educators to grow, we must encourage constant change backed by evidence.
- We will center the health and wellness of educators and affirm the humanity of teachers and students.
- Joy in our work is organic and will create an environment that is conducive to collectivism, collaboration, and collegiality.
To that extent, we work to elevate teacher voices to change the narrative of public education- particularly in some of our most underserved communities across the world. We advocate for teachers to write about what really happens in their classroom with a solution-focused mindset so that teachers can feel supported in a world where teacher respect is at an all-time low.
The Educator’s Room aims to engage in honest, non-partisan dialogue about all topics in education, including teacher self-care, student achievement, instruction and curriculum, pedagogy, parent support, etc. At times, these conversations may be difficult, but they are essential in truly supporting teachers, students, and caregivers.
We have published thousands of articles, tweets, videos, and other content featuring voices from around the world, all with one thing in common- they are certificated teachers. In addition, we have been featured on various media platforms, including The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, and to name a few.
In addition to our articles, we have published six independent books, presented at conferences around the country, and held seminars around topics affecting teachers.
Throughout our work, we remain committed to supporting not only established teachers but also those who are considering education as a career move. We realize that across the world, the professional workforce of teachers is diminishing, and we believe in order to return teachers back to the workforce, we need to not only be supportive but honest about what we need to do our jobs better. Our work will continue with addressing topics that are controversial but are needed.
We are grateful for our many teachers/writers who sacrifice their planning periods, time with their families, and professional life to write about public education. They represent the thousands of professionals who enter our schools daily and teach our students regardless of what is happening behind the scenes. Teachers are not only appreciated here but revered for their professionalism, dedication, and love for students.
In 2023 and beyond, The Educator’s Room looks forward to producing events focused on the Annual Teacher Self-Care Conference and our subsequent one-day workshops, debuting our Weekly News show, our ever-popular podcasts, and creating content with our boutiques websites like The Instructional Coach Academy and Education in Atlanta that teachers want to read. During this year, we may laugh, argue, and cry together- but know that we are partners in education.
