About Us

Who We Are

This blog is an outgrowth of the website Education Oasis an independent, not-for-profit site. It was created in 2003 by K.J. Wagner, M.A., a teacher. Our contributors are a diverse group of teachers who believe that education is power.


What We Believe

We are passionate about the power of education to change the world and the idea that every child can learn, regardless of his or her circumstances. We also believe that teaching is a noble calling. Everything we do flows from those three core beliefs.


What We Do

This blog, as well as the Education Oasis site, is intended to be a warm and friendly place where teachers can come to get ideas, information, and inspiration. In addition to maintaining the website, we create curricula, mentor new teachers, provide professional development, and review children’s and YA books for educators, libraries, and districts.
