NICOLE WONG United Teachers Los Angeles @caffeinateandeducate " My goal on Instagram is to share teaching ideas and strategies with teachers around the world, and to provide inspiration to new- comers to the profession. I aim to show the world a glimpse into the not-so-ordinary teacher life; the struggles and rewards, those standing-ovation-worthy lessons, and the not-so- glamorous melt- down moments. " Need a writing strategy to engage struggling writers? A behavior man- agement tool? A new approach to that complicated algebra lesson? It's all on Instagram." JILL SHAFER Los Alamitos Education Association @hello_fifth " Instagram is my professional development, at my fingertips, and available 24 hours a day. " The Instagram teacher community can revolutionize your practices, invigorate you, and honestly, remind you why you got into this profession in the first place. You can search hashtags, follow like-minded teachers, and just fill your cup with inspiration and encouragement. I encourage any teacher to hop on and join because it's made a huge difference in my career." VANESSA BROOKS San Jacinto Teachers Association @my2ndgradelife " I use Instagram to share ideas that have worked in my classroom, from classroom management tips to classroom decor. I believe 100 percent I have become a better teacher because of Instagram and the ideas I've seen from teachers around the world. " My goal for Instagram is to be able to impact classrooms all over the U.S. Knowing that an idea you shared helped a group of students on the other side of the country is an amazing feeling. It makes you feel like you have had a bigger impact than what's in the walls of your school."
