The National Geographic Educator Network connects pre-K through 12 formal and informal educators committed to inspiring the next generation of explorers, conservationists, educators, and changemakers. We provide educators opportunities to share best practices and ideas with each other in an online community, explore innovative classroom resources, meet and build new skills at professional development workshops, and grow as leaders with the National Geographic Society.

Meet Educators From Our Network


“As a teacher, I want to teach my students about the world around them. There is so much to learn and know about our world, and I want to bring those experiences right into our classroom. Through National Geographic, I am able to show my students that world through resources and professional learning.”

Jennifer Gross

“I am constantly invigorated by the support that National Geographic provides to educators, from all backgrounds, to be able to implement incredible opportunities for educators and their learners across the country.”

“My mission is to bridge the gap between students and the environment they live in through digital journeys and real-world experiences.”

Kelly Meade
