Bread Loaf Rural Teacher Network

The Bread Loaf Rural Teacher Network is a national organization of teachers sponsored by Middlebury College's Bread Loaf School of English and is dedicated to foster fundamental improvement in the quality and educational and career development opportunities for all school-age youth, and to increase access to these opportunities for young people in low-income rural communities.

Geography Alliance Network

Geography Alliance Network, sponsored by National Geographic, has built a national network of K-12 teachers, college geographers, and others dedicated to improving geography education. Operating as grassroots organizations, the network promotes geography education at local, state, and national levels.

The National Writing Project, another professional development network, serves teachers of writing at all grade levels, primary through university, and in all subjects. Its mission is to improve student achievement by improving the teaching of writing and improving learning in the nation's schools.

Google Groups

Many teachers have turned to Google Groups to create on-line communities and networks on every subject from Astronomy to Zoology.

Try searching for a group covering your subject or passion.

Joining a group, or starting your own, will help reduce the sometimes frustrating isolation of being bound to one classroom all day without stimulating professional interaction and give you access to high quality resources as needs arise.
