6 of the Best Education Innovators for Teachers to Follow

Updated: Mar 11


As we scroll through our social media, we are inundated with messages, advice, and recommendations from "experts." We see posts where people show us how to everything, from cooking and parenting to dealing with daily teaching challenges. With so much coming at us, how do know who to look up to for solid, genuine ideas that will work for us in our classrooms? Here is a list of a few educators that I follow and I think you'll also find them to be inspiring, practical, and insightful.


Dr. Catlin Tucker: Twitter | Instagram | Linkedin | Website Author of a series of books including Balance With Blended Learning, Blended Learning In Action, and more.

  • Catlin offers lots of tips, suggestions, and resources for blending the best aspects of online and offline learning to actively engage students. Her blog and Twitter feed are especially rich with practical ideas for teachers today.

Allison Rodman: Twitter | Instagram | Linkedin | Website Author of Personalized Professional Learning: A Job-Embedded Pathway for Elevating Teacher Voice.

Joe Welch: Twitter

Teacher, Apple Distinguished Educator, PA Teacher of the Year, AMLE Educator of the Year, and more!

  • I met Joe when I worked for the Blended Schools Network and did a series of trainings at the North Hills School District. At that time, and since, Joe has been a trendsetter when it comes to providing quality learning experiences for students in online, blended or face-to-face models.
