Amy Issadore Bloom


This website is a collection of professional writing, and some short essays from my early blogging days. 

After ten years of teaching English Language Learners, I took a “break” to raise my own boys. Being a teacher has largely shaped who I am, and how I view the world. Through writing, I am able to continue to share the stories of my students and the professionals committed to supporting them. I’m a strong advocate for education equity, students in underserved communities, and special education.

I helped to create, and became a steady contributor to First Person: Narratives from the Classroom for the Virginia Journal of Education.

While my passion and expertise lies with education writing, I enjoy exploring other topics. I am flexible, deadline-driven, and available for freelance writing work. Please email me at, use the Contact link, or tweet @bloomindc to chat more.
