Welcome to eledblog.com! As our motto states, we created this web site as a place for educators to gather, share and learn. More specifically we want to create a place where educators can build community, share their stories through blogs and comments, engage in discussions within the forums, find current educational news, post and retrieve lesson plans, and explore a world of resources available on the internet. Although our focus is on elementary education, we welcome all teachers, administrators, and specialists. Elementary Education Blog - eledblog.com, is free to use, and it is our sincere hope educators take full advantage of the opportunity. Please join us and help us build this educational community.
ElEdBlog.com was started by two graduates from Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington, who now live in the greater Seattle area.
Caitlin McPhee, earned BAs in Linguistics and Spanish. She later earned her TESOL certification, and her Washington State teaching endorsement through Western's Woodring College of Education.
Robert Enga, earned his BA in Communication, graduating Cum Laude. He later earned his Washington State K-8 teaching endorsement through Woodring as well.
Even though we started this site, we would like to emphasize that it is nothing without the community that comes and makes it a place where they can "...gather, share and learn." This site is all about you, passionate and inspired educators who want to hone your craft and help others with theirs. Welcome, please make yourselves at home, feel free to contact Caitlin or me and let us know if we can do anything to help make this a place more to your liking.
A note about our name:
You may have guessed already, but eledblog stands for Elementary Education or Educators' Blog. As teachers we struggled with how to express our name; should it be El. Ed. Blog, ElEdBlog, ELEd Blog, etc. Eventually, we decided to let the conventions of the medium (Internet) dictate the form our name would take: eledblog.com is how we will most often refer to the site.
