Hi. I’m Laura Coulter. I have 16 years of teaching experience across elementary, middle school, and high school. I took a break from teaching and freelanced as an education writer then worked as a project editor for Rigby Professional Development, a division of Harcourt. I learned a lot about the education writing industry during that time.
While I was searching for freelance job leads for myself, I found several that weren’t a great fit for me, but I was loathe to just ignore them because it was a lot of work to find them! I searched job boards left and right trying to find a board that fit my education niche. Nada. So I figured I would start one. That was January 2008. I posted all the leads I came across, whether I applied for them or not. And Writing for the Education Market was born.
