I am always spending too much time on social media talking to, listening to, and watching other teachers! But, let me tell you, it is definitely for all the right reasons! Like many of you, I have my core besties to discuss teaching with and get advice from EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
But, I started finding I was getting the same ideas, the same direction, and the same resources from a tiny circle of other teachers. Have you ever felt the same? So, I have sought out teacher groups for the last few years, and I came across some GOOD ONES! I have found 15 Teacher Groups that you will want to join TODAY!
So please go like and follow our centerpiece page on Facebook: Education to the Core! You will receive some of the best advice, funniest (but accurate) teacher memes, and most on-target resources coming into your newsfeed. The conversations in the comments sometimes are enough to keep me hooked!
Our founder, Emily Garcia, has launched 3 Facebook groups from her trailblazing page. Although the Fearless Firsties group was the first and remains the biggest, ETTC has some fantastic teachers asking the questions you are thinking in all three groups! We don’t shy away from some of the critical topics affecting teachers today, and we welcome respectful conversations on ALL things teaching!
- For any Kinder Teachers: Fearless Kindergarten Teachers
- Our first and most joined Group: Fearless First Grade Teachers
- And, for our 2nd-grade Teachers: Fearless Second Grade Teachers
has over 180,000 members! Sprinkled with humor and sound advice, ask and answer all your questions. Although this group is not geared towards any specific grade, many members are early elementary teachers.
Close to My Heart Teacher Groups
The Tutu Teacher is Vera Ahiyya. She says she is just ‘twirling her way’ through kindergarten as she shares her own experiences, diverse curriculum and books, and all things kinder on her TuTu Teacher page!
But, check out and join Diverse Reads for the Classroom, a group for ‘teachers to share ideas, resources, and titles to offer our students mirror and window experiences.’
Carly and Adam link you up with all things STEM in this group! They created a group for K-5 teachers and homeschool teachers to make STEM accessible to all of our students. Carly and Adam also have a group that provides ongoing professional development: Elementary Stem Teachers Club.
Some Bonus Facebook Pages (Not Groups)
Clever Classroom posts teaching ideas and resources geared toward primary teachers. Tempered with humorous and inspiring memes, Clever Classroom has a blog, Facebook group, and a store.
Catherine Reed has packed her page with ideas, how-to videos, and classroom activities that teachers can do on a budget. Her busy schedule includes this page, items on TPT, a blog, and more!
IN MY OPINION, Mrs. D’s Corner is the best teacher Facebook page for special education teachers. Mrs. D is a “Special education teacher who is passionate about making grade-level content functional, engaging, and meaningful for all students.”
And the Absolute Best Computer Click for All Your Resource Needs is . . .
Join today for access to 1000’s on-demand resources from the world’s most trusted educators. Please choose from one of our three plans TODAY and stop the endless search for materials. We have ELA, Math, SEL, Grammar/Writing, Phonics, STEM, etc.
More Teacher Groups to Join
Deanna and DeeDee are well-known names for their conferences, materials, and webinars. The group focuses mainly on their own created resources, but any questions for K/1 can come up in their group.
Teachers of 3rd graders, this group is for YOU! I love listening to podcasts and watching webinars with the Not So Wimpy Teacher, Jamie Sears, at the helm. Jamie runs four Facebook groups, so if 3rd isn’t your jam, you are sure to find a group that fits!
10 – Fitness for Teachers
Who has time for fitness groups, right? What if I told you this group combines lesson plans and lunges. Teachers come together to share ideas, recipes, and support.
Additional Teacher Groups
When the virus hit and everything became virtual, Bitmoji classrooms ruled the education world. The members’ creativity and their gift of sharing their slides and creations with everyone hooked me! I go to this group for anything I may wish to teach and share with technology!
Do you have some teacher items to sell? Or, are you looking to buy? This buy and sell group for teachers has resources, books, decorations, and other classroom essentials!
is another group for teachers to help others connect with materials and resources. Cat Gonzalez adds that it is anything that can help teachers succeed!
A Few More Teacher Groups
Teachers within their first few years of teaching love this group. Their intro gives a little reason why: “If YOU are in your first three years of teaching and some days, it’s amazing, and your students have lightbulb 💡moments so bright you need shades 🕶 and other days, and we mean, far too many other days, you want to cry 😢 in your beer 🍺…. we feel you.”
This group was created by ‘Brenda Tejeda, for teachers, assistants, homeschool educators, retired teachers, and student teachers of kindergarten and first grade who want to collaborate, learn, laugh, and support one another.’
