We are The Educators Link

Behind The Educators Link is a dynamic team of educators, learning specialists, tech gurus and event planners who are passionate about connecting people and fostering community educational space.

Core Values we celebrate:

We value equity, inclusion and dignity, recognizing that our differences make us stronger.
We empower others with the tools they need to acquire new skills, expand their knowledge and achieve success.
We believe in building authentic, meaningful relationships, and delivering impactful content that makes a difference.
We are committed to supporting the communities in which we live and work.
We’re honest, transparent and committed to doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.

Our Founders:

Partners since birth, it seemed natural that Korin, Jamie and Shira would transform their childhood sister-time spent playing "teacher" and "library" into a real life venture. Our goal in creating The Educators Link is to provide educators and consultants with a warm, inviting and user-friendly place to meet all of your learning needs. We invite you to become a part of our family.
