48 forward-thinking teachers have been featured in our weekly Sunday Spotlight series. Getting to know the group of teachers through each interview was an absolute pleasure. Their AHA moments, teaching philosophies, greatest accomplishments, and their lives beyond the classroom inspired us. We learned their favorite classroom tricks, snacks and classroom decor, as well as why they became teachers and how they first heard about Edulastic. A huge thank you to all the educators who took the time to share their stories and perspectives!

We encourage you to read a few of their full interviews here. You may come away inspired!  The spotlights are organized below in a way that will help you discover an educator similar to you. Maybe you’ll find some new ideas to incorporate into your classroom this year!
