In the TeachersConnect community, teachers and education professionals from everywhere are encouraged to share thoughts, resources, questions, and answers. However, if you are a part of a specific community that has partnered with TeachersConnect and are looking to join your colleagues, here is how you can do it.
Steps for Joining a Teacher Community:
- Navigate to your Profile Page
Click the “Menu” button at the top right corner to access your profile and tools. Click the “Profile” button.
- Edit Profile
Once you are looking at your profile, you will see a button to the right of your name that says “Edit Profile.” Click it.
- Add a Teacher Community
Under the Teacher Communities section of your profile, click the “Add Community” button. Choose a teacher community by clicking on the drop down list and then selecting one. You can also type the name of your teacher community and select it from the list. Click “Save.” You have now joined that Teacher Community. (If you have mistakenly saved the wrong teacher community and want to remove it, click the “Option” button next to the community’s name on your edit profile page, and click “Delete.”)
Note: If you do not see your teacher community on the list, they may not have partnered with TeachersConnect. Contact a representative of the community/organization and ask about partnering with TeachersConnect.
- View Your Teacher Community
Click the “Menu” button at the top right corner again to access your tools. You will now see a tile for your teacher community. Click it to view posts and questions from members of that community. Your posts and questions will appear there as well.
