We Are…

We are a community of life-long learners. Yes, we are educators. We are the ones responsible for teaching young minds. But as strong educators, we know that in order to stay effective, influential, and relevant in our students’ lives, we must never stop learning. Here at Edbean, we want to create a community that challenges each other, that inspires one another, and that supports the educators who are looking to grow. We want to provide a place for educators to post their thoughts, reflect on their teaching, and respond to the ever-changing world of education. We are a place to post your classroom triumphs and curricular successes. We are a place to blog about the new lesson that failed and the “almost win” that did not quite work out. We encourage you to blog about the coolest new app or online educational resource. We want you to post questions you have about latest teaching trend or classroom pedagogy. We encourage everyone to not just post, but to comment and respond to each other: enthusiastically agree, respectfully disagree, ask questions, or offer a different point of view. We are teachers and administrators. We are first-year educators and educators teaching the children of our former students. We are tech-savvy gurus and tech-terrified newbies. We are individuals, striving to be better than yesterday, never settling for “good enough”, and always willing to do what is best for our students.

We are a community of life-long learners…
We Are EDBEAN!
