Parents Taking Charge in Education Features the Website -

Parents Taking Charge in Education Features the Website –

by Mrs. Dorothy Barron

Parents, there are many choices and quality websites and material on the Internet to assist you and your children, but the problem for many is finding the time to surf for long periods of time and locate the best and most feasible information. That is why when Parents Taking Charge in Education finds such websites, materials and information, we bring them to your attention and/or feature them at our blog. I recently came across Ms. Linda Guterba's Website,; both the site and site owner are engaging and professional. After I requested permission to feature her and her site, I requested information about both. She supplied such a professional introduction, I have decided to let Ms. Guterba tell you in her own words - who she is; what she does and the services she provide at She also operates a sister site for teachers.

Now, from Ms. Linda Guterba –

I have been a teacher for 37 years and have worked diligently to create, a FREE educational web directory that saves parents, students, and teachers valuable time by providing - in ONE website directory - the BEST Preschool and K-12 quality educational websites, videos, and powerpoints. As a teacher, I know how much time it takes to search for quality websites to complete homework assignments, or enhance and reinforce any teacher's given curriculum! Trying to locate appropriate and relevant information on the worldwide web using popular search engines, and then ''sifting'' through key word search results can be tedious, time consuming, and often bring irrelevantresults. This is the very reason I created and its sister site, I have done the searching for students, teachers, and parents, and organized the web for them! is UNIQUELY different from other educational web directories, as it is easy to navigate, and is the ONLY educational web directory that organizes websites according to SPECIFIC, rather than general, curriculum studied in schools throughout the United States, and most countries around the world. The links within and its companion site, Teacher Tidbytes, are checked weekly for dead links, and new links are added on a continual basis.
Since its creation, has become a highly recommended homework and reference resource for students, teachers, and parents. It has been listed in the USA TODAY as a "best educator pick", recommended by Woman's Day magazine as one of the 6 top educational homework help web resources, and recommended by The American Library Association, the Librarians' Internet Index, and the Internet Public Library. In addition, was just recently added as a top homework and reference resource to the UK School Zone (a site reviewed by United Kingdom teachers for relevant curriculum web resources).

         Hats Off to Ms. Linda Guterba; thank you for making a difference in Education!
