CUE Guest Blog Editors
We have reached out to several leaders from within our community and asked them to bring their perspective to the CUE Blog. Over several months, they’ll be inviting contributors and adding their own special spin to our beloved blog.
CUE gets “Weird”
For the next month, Doug Robertson, better known as “The Weird Teacher” will be helming the Good Ship CUE Blog to engage and inspire, inform and amuse and perhaps even make you smile as well.
Who is the Weird Teacher?
Doug Robertson is a ninth-year teacher currently talking at fourth graders in Southern Oregon. He’s taught in California, Hawaii, and Oregon in 3rd, 4th, and 6th grades. He’s the author of two books about education, He’s the Weird Teacher and a surprise to be released shortly. Doug is becoming a fixture at teaching conferences including CUE Rock Star Teacher Camps, presenting on everything from technology to teaching philosophy (or teaching The Weird Way, to use his words). He believes in bringing joy and verve to classrooms, looking at students as real people who need real connecting to, and taking on education from a sideways perspective. He is also the creator and moderator of #WeirdEd on Twitter, which happens every Wednesday at 7pm PST. East coast teachers can participate in #WeirdEdE Wednesday at 7pm EST.
Doug is excited to be a part of the CUE family for the next month and has many interesting topics planned as well as a few guest posts from some of the most talented teachers on Twitter.
