Marjan, I do not recall when I actually joined your email listings, but I have always looked forward to it coming so that I could use your help to enhance my students’ learning, creativity, and enjoyment of school. I have given many of my colleagues, parents, and even students your web site, only to hear complete excitement and satisfaction!!

Now, last August, 2006, took on a different dimension. Distraught and heartbroken at having been to the “what was once my school” after the wrath of Hurricane Katrina, I came home only to find your newest Busy Educator newsletter awaiting me. My first impulse was to email you and just let you know that we, simply stating it, needed help here in Long Beach, Mississippi.

You were so comforting, kind, supporting, and requested permission to send my email out to your 30,000 readers!! Harper McCaughan Elementary School Long Beach Mississippi


Marjan, that was a complete turning point for those of us at Harper McCaughan Elementary. The overwhelming response from schools, teachers, and individuals was unbelievable as thousands upon thousands of materials and financial donations flowed in…and still do, I might add!

Just know that you have touched the lives of every child and teacher at our school and that you will long be remembered and appreciated. From disaster comes good, Marjan, and you created that for us. I will always consider YOU a personal friend and hope to meet you in person one day.

You are more than an educator; you are a caring, loving individual. My life is better by having our lives cross paths.

Thank you, Marjan, for everything!!

Thank you for your continued excellence in providing educators academic and professional resources and learning tools that are really valuable.

I have retired from full time teaching and have immensely enjoyed and benefited from the monthly Busy Educator’s newsletter as well as your book of websites which I purchased many years ago.  Thank you so much for the work you put into preparing these newsletters for us.

Gisela Hausmann, author of “obvious LETTERS”

Educ-Easy BooksMarjan Glavac’s newsletter ”The Busy Educator Newsletter” has been around long enough that those of us who have been educators for a while know that it lives up to what it promises: In-depth information – well-presented.

It could be assumed that Marjan Glavac’s readers were equally devoted teachers who are truly interested in what’s going on and what’s new and noteworthy. As an independent author and publisher who went a new route rather than trampling the well-known path I wanted to introduce my book “obvious LETTERS” to Marjan Glavac’s readers.

I practically begged him to run my ads. When he finally did I was happy to find out that Marjan Glavac’s readers were not too busy to look at my work. I got a tremendous response and met phenomenal colleagues.

I just wanted to let you know that this was the best newsletter I have ever signed up for! I am glad that I stumbled upon it online as I was searching for a way to make my first year teaching go smoothly!

I just want to thank you for the weblinks you provide! Each month I find something new and worthwhile, and boy did you hit me with a great one this month! I have been working hard the last two months to make math more interactive and was thrilled yesterday when I linked to the connection to Math Internet.

This is a winner!! Thanks for your support and good eye!
