BE A REAL PERSON
Think of your favorite teacher accounts that you follow. Chances are, you follow them because you feel a connection with them. Watching their stories and reading their posts makes you feel like you know them. You can have this kind of connection with your followers, too!
I seriously cannot say this enough times. An essential part of starting and building your Teacher Instagram is showing up, and showing up consistently. Think of it like developing relationships with the people who follow you.
The Teacher Instagram community is a wonderful place to collaborate, make friends, discover new ideas, and share strategies. Don't be discouraged when you see the success of other people! Do what you love, even if there are other people doing it too. Happy Teaching!
