In his effort to “catalogue the internet for students, educators and parents” Jerry Blumengarten has created a website for pretty much anyone. If you’re looking for pretty much anything, chances are Jerry’s got a page for it. His Tweets alone make him a valuable member of your Personal Learning Network. Follow him at

Home of the educational model that saved my career, Layered Curriculum, Dr. Kathie Nunley’s website is loaded with informational articles, newsletters and other resources for teachers and parents regarding education and brain development. The sample unit sheets alone make it a gold mine for great classroom ideas and her books are invaluable for anybody looking to improve their Differentiated Instruction. Her Teaching Tips page is worth a bookmark as well, with great ideas submitted by teachers from all over the world at every grade level and subject matter.

Dr. Bobb Darnell is a energetic, entertaining presenter that brings a wealth of knowledge wherever he goes. Any school district would be lucky to have him and any teacher is sure to walk away with something they can use in their classrooms the next day. His website is full of tremendous links and useful information for both parents and teachers, well worth whatever time it would take to check it out.
