Life is busy, and teaching is even busier than before! So where do you turn when you want support, ideas and inspiration? You go to virtual teachers’ lounges (aka teacher Facebook groups)! Facebook Groups offer a place to share your journey with a like-minded community. If you even had time to catch up with colleagues in the teachers’ lounge, you might have still felt a little uninspired or isolated. Perhaps you were the only art teacher in your school, or librarian, or technology coach. Trying to meet with like-minded individuals in other schools and districts can be a laborious option too. For so many educators around the world, Facebook groups have solved these problems. Teachers can feel more connected, supported, and inspired than ever before thanks to online communities that are available 24/7. Come join millions of educators progressing into the 21st century through this form of networking and timely collaboration!
