May 4, 2015 - May 8, 2015

Last year, a movement was born from a simple question: What if teachers used the power of social media to celebrate the complexity and importance of teaching? A hashtag was created, and #TeachingIs became a conduit for teachers to engage with the public.

This year, teachers will again create a #TeachingIs movement through Facebook walls, Twitter streams, Instagram accounts, and faculty lounges. Using Tweets, video clips, and images, we invite teachers, parents, and students to tell their individual and collectives stories about what teaching is. 

Join this year’s #TeachingIs campaign May 4-8, and help teachers elevate the incredible work of their colleagues!

Ways to get involved:

  • Share messages and graphics from our Partner Pack via your social media channels. The toolkit includes graphics and sample social media messages to make it easy to promote the campaign. You are welcome to customize any of the materials as you see fit. We are encouraging supporters to take ownership of this campaign and create their own definitions and content around #TeachingIs. We will be adding additional graphics and resources over the course of the next few weeks as well.

  • Create and share your own #TeachingIs content! Tell the world what #TeachingIs to you via tweet, blog post, Vine, Instagram, Google+, etc. Just be sure to use the hashtag #TeachingIs.

Through your stories, we can change the conversation and celebrate the positive impact and influence of teachers all over the world.
