On this page I have provided links to some internet sites that could be important or useful to educators. If you have found another that you would like to have added to the list, just indicate this below in the comments box!
The National Teachers Hall of Fame (NTHF), located in Emporia, Kansas, was founded in 1989 by Emporia State University, the ESU Alumni Association, the City of Emporia, USD 253, and the Emporia Area Chamber of Commerce as a tribute to our nation’s most important profession: teaching. The Hall of Fame is committed to drawing the public’s attention to exceptional elementary and secondary teachers through a museum, a teacher resource center, and a recognition program which honors five of the nation’s most outstanding educators each year. The NTHF is dedicated to recognizing career teachers, to preserving and promoting education, and to serving our country by inspiring others to enter the teaching profession. Located on the Emporia State University campus, the Hall of Fame includes a gallery of honored teachers, a Wall of Fame, and a display of classroom miniatures through the centuries. A gift shop also is available. The Hall of Fame is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed holidays. Visit their web site at http://www.nthf.dreamhosters.com/.
The National Education Association (NEA), the nation’s largest professional employee organization, is committed to advancing the cause of public education. Since it was founded, the NEA has been ahead of its time, crusading for the rights of all educators and children. Today, the NEA states that its mission is to advocate for education professionals and to unite its members and the nation to fulfill the promise of public education to prepare every student to succeed in a diverse and interdependent world. NEA’s three million members work at every level of education—from pre-school to university graduate programs. The National Education Association has affiliate organizations in every state and in more than 14,000 communities all across the United States.
