Teachers are charged with the very important task of educating our children. They act as facilitators or coaches to help students learn and apply important concepts. Many teachers, especially at the primary level, use a hands-on approach to help students understand abstract concepts, solve problems, and develop critical thinking skills. Each year, more and more blogs and websites pop up, where teachers share their expertise and ideas with other teachers.

Online Masters in Education.org has created a list of the 100 Best Web Resources for Educators in 2012. Accounting for factors such as years of teaching experience, quality of content, readership, and reputation, you can navigate this list to top blogs and websites for educators. For easy navigation, the list is divided into four categories: preschool, elementary, middle, and high school. Please note, all of the websites on this list are fantastic resources, and they are not presented in order of rank.
