As we try to connect with US educators as parents, we will continue identifying top accounts for teachers and parents. The accounts are ranked in the following order: educator of the week, teacher union accounts, PTA accounts, accounts with guest blogs, followers, and non-followers. Within each category, we list the accounts by the number of followers.
Current list of top teachers using social media by state! Top Educators are ranked by number of followers. We are off to a slow start with the 1st month of school, however we will try to build this list of incredibly useful education for this school year.
There are 180 days in a school year, so were are hoping to identify 180 great accounts – one for each day. Check back, we will be updating regularly.
We love each of these accounts and are proud to follow each one! (We also will try to twist a few arms to see if we can get some great guest blogs from our list too!)
