Come have a cup of tea or coffee with me!
Today’s daily prompt, All About Me, motivates us to explain why we chose our blog’s title and what it means to us.
The Education Cafe began my blogging passion. I started it anonymously, a good year before starting my personal blog.
Education: I am passionate about education (educating children, helping parents educate children, and resourcing teachers). As the About Us/Welcome page says, this blog is all about the education needs of parents, teachers, and students educating or being educated abroad. Articles are written and submitted by a variety of people: moms and dads, homeschool parents, national school parents, boarding school parents and teachers, international school teachers, family counselors, school counselors, education consultants, and students.
Cafe: Originally, I thought about The Education Library, but then I thought that a library sounded stuffy, confining, old, and presumptuous (as if this blog would have everything anyone was looking for). I chose the term cafe because it reminded me of a couple of parents or teachers sitting down in a coffee shop sharing stories and ideas . . . and resourcing one another. That is why the About Us page concludes with the line:
Get your coffee or tea, grab an article, and hang out in the cafe.
