Best Practices for Teacher Pages

  • Post a bio & profile photo so your students and families can get to know you & your experience.
  • Utilize quick posts & subscriptions to engage with families and keep them updated on what is happening every day or every week in your classroom.
  • Create classes and post syllabi/yearly overviews so students and parents always know what’s expected and what’s coming up.
  • Include a rubric library, standards list or grading information with your teacher pages.
  • Post homework so students can print out resources and keep track of due dates.
  • Create photo galleries showcasing student work, projects and performances.
  • Upload videos so students can continue learning outside of the classroom (just make sure you have permission to post!).
