The Updated Teacher Roll Call
Charellabon took it upon herself to take on the daunting task of organizing the Teacher Roll Call. Girlwithalessonplan started the roll call by keeping a blog post of teacher bloggers before the #education tag was officially started. World-shaker took it a step further by using GoogleDocs to create a submit form that exported all the information into a spreadsheet.
Charellbon has checked each entry, identified defunct tumblrs, and organized each blog by state. You can now view the master list and even find people by state/location. She should be applauded for her work on this.
So, what’s new?
1. Sorting by Location groups, alphabetically by state abbreviations, on the Master Roll Call, which is the main spreadsheet and the first page (and thus called the Master, due to subsequent spreadsheets following the Master Roll Call).
This roll call is available to the public, but only to those with the link.

2. A new Submit form to point to the To Be Added/Filed tab, the tab directly to the right of the Master Roll Call spreadsheet.
The To Be Added/Filedtab gets updated live. Char will plan to manage future entries by manually transferring them from the To Be Added/Filedtab onto the Master Roll Calland respective Location sheets. Note that the form is the same exact form from the original (I copied and pasted), but with a different destination.

3. Specific Location spreadsheets within the Master Roll Call (i.e., CA Tumblr Teacher spreadsheet tab).
4. Location spreadsheet tabs at the bottom (desktop view) or top (mobile view) are also listed alphabetically.
5. Pink highlighted entries indicating defunct, “not found” tumblrs.
We will eventually be deleting these blogs from the list.
Char noted the following:
In addition to making these 20 spreadsheets plus the Submit form, I crunched out some numbers out of curiosity:
- 1377 total entries of Tumblr teachers!
- 223 defunct tumblrs within the Master Roll Call.
This still means we have 1,154 active Tumblr Teachers out there - over a THOUSAND entries, folks!
- The leading location - as far as numbers are concerned - is our International tumblrs, with 237 active entries. Then No Response tumblrs, with 93 active entries, followed by California tumblrs, with 82 active entries. New York is the runner up, with 75 active tumblrs.
Again, major props to Charaellbon for this. She’s a education-licensed homeschooling mom and relatively new to Tumblr #education, so give her a follow and thank her for her work.
