Ask any group of teachers for one thing that they need to improve their teaching practice, and I can guarantee you the answer will be "time together."
The absolute, NUMBER ONE thing that helps me grow and evolve my teaching practice is time with other educators where I can learn from their techniques, strategies, philosophies, and experience.
Time, unfortunately, is something in very short supply, even under the best of circumstances. There are always items filling our To-Do Lists, seeming to be important, and taking our attention and energy away from collaborative moments with colleagues.
ENTER: Teacher Social Media (cue fanfare)
Finding, following, and ultimately connecting with fellow teachers through social media channels is an amazing way to grow professionally, as well as to find some phenomenal lesson ideas and inspiration!
While I have MANY teacher Instagram accounts which I recommend all teachers follow, today's focus is on ELA teachers. In this video, I explain why I follow each of my 5 favorite ELA teacher Instagram accounts. Enjoy!
Do yourself a favor and give these accounts a follow NOW!
Which ELA Instagram accounts can you add to the list?
