Welcome to TeachersAretheBest.com, a blog created by a teacher for teachers.
We are a young educational website but have been helping teachers around the world make their life easier and become the best they possibly to ensure their student’s success. We help teachers find their true selves by nurturing the passion that is already there but only needs to be re-ignited, challenged, and appreciated.
Through topics that back up teaching, those who are looking for answers can run through relevant solutions from teachers who share their experiences. Of course, we find great videos and pretty images to make their readings more than just words and imagination.
Our goal is to build a place online where teaching and learning resources can be found and shared. A place that can help teachers transmit the importance of excellent education to the community they serve. Our mission is to contribute to the teaching-learning process by giving teachers tools to overcome the challenges of everyday teaching.
When teachers develop strong confidence, they express themselves without pressure. Seldom is there just one way to make a difference. By helping teachers along the way, we help transform not only our students but the world.
What We Do and Who We Are
Teachers Are the Best came from the inspiration of how teachers play a vital role in the life of a child. Our site was born in 2020 from this reflection and since has been a platform for teacher’s support. Our content focuses on all the areas of teaching, learning, and leading, including all the factors that an educator has to work on every single day.
Headed by Oscar, the director, we are a group of educators, content specialists, social media specialists, among others, working around the clock to inspire other educators. We have combined expertise, research, and technology with real-life experiences to provide a “go-to” place where teachers can turn for references.
Our team strives to gather fully-custom yet hands-on concepts that empower teachers with things they may never have been exposed to before. We stand to the reason that if they feel that struggles are brewing – they should do something to flip things towards the direction of attainment.
Why Trust Us
At Teachers Are the Best, we make sure our guidance is relatable to everyday teaching needs. People trust us because they like how our coaching contributes to the human experience. We believe that helping educators affirms them of their power to prioritize and delegate effectively.

Oscar: Founder and director
Starting out as an elementary teacher to an Assistant Principal for the K-6 grades, he is currently the Head Principal in a medium-sized K-9 private Christian school. He also worked as a Language Arts teacher in middle school for many years. His direction has inspired teachers to uplift their core interests and take part in promoting excellent education to the community they serve.
Coming from a family which received little formal education has driven Oscar to obtain a higher education himself. He believes that a solid foundation from the beginning of learning is crucial to one’s educational path.
“Replication over one’s own actions is the key to growth,” he says, and thus models this reflection to his fellow teachers, students, and parents.
Along with his educational background and passion for teaching, Oscar considers himself a “forever learner.” He loves to step out of his comfort zone. Although not all experiences as a teacher and principal have been pleasant, these have made out of him a better teacher with the strong passion to become a leader every day.
Besides being a full-time teacher and principal, Oscar is a dedicated husband and a caring father of three small boys. He has various hobbies from reading, listening to music, playing and teaching piano, playing with excel formulas, writing, and online marketing. He likes gardening too, in fact, he has a green thumb!
