The March Madness Teacher Brackets is being sponsored by www.GradeSuccess.com, a great resource for teachers. If you like our the March Madness Challenge, please say hello @GradeSuccess on twitter.
My Town Tutors is a committed to being a #1 resource for parents and teachers in America. For 2014 we are going to identify 365 great twitter accounts for teachers.
My Town Tutors is the nation’s 1st National Directory of teachers who tutor. Our goal in 2014 is to expand our network of local teachers who tutor to 1,000 teachers! In 2013 we had over 150,000 visitors to our site from all 50 states.
March Madness is a crazy time of year. We decided to join the fun by having a few brackets of our own for twitter accounts. We started by selecting an educator of the day. We are a little behind, but here is our current list last update March 17th.
From this list, we selected the first 68 Accounts. Then the madness began:
First Four Results
1st Round Results
2nd Round Results
We are now left with the Sweet 16. We hope you follow us to see who we crown as the 2014 March Madness Connected Educator. We have NO IDEA who it will be. We were hoping it was @mytowntutors, but we were knocked off in the round of 32 by @nancycaroll24.
Here is who is still standing.
