Top 12 Must-Read Canadian Teacher Blogs
An influential teacher once said, “A teacher never stops teaching, even outside of the classroom.”
We couldn’t agree more! The Canadian teachers we’ve featured below return home from a day in class and write advice, stories, and tips so other teachers and parents can help children learn more effectively in their own lives. By sharing ideas, memories, and funny stories about their time in and out of the classroom, they provide inspiration to students, parents, and other teachers alike.
From kindergarten stories to conquering math woes, these teachers have been through it all. So kick back, relax and put down that marking to browse through our list of 12 Canadian teacher blogs!
