You need to be on Instagram for teaching! Here are 20 hashtags you can follow on Instagram to connect with teachers!
 Hey, y’all!

When I started this blog about a year ago, I was looking for an outlet to share teaching ideas that can make teachers’ lives easier. At the time, I felt proficient in terms of social media. I was already obsessed with Twitter, had a personal Instagram, and was on Pinterest daily for inspiration and to find resources. It was only when I started this blog, however, that I came to realize that Instagram (yes, Instagram!) is basically a wonderland of teaching inspiration! I had never searched Instagram for teaching related stuff before, but as I’ve explored more and more, I’ve now become hooked!

As I said, I hadn’t previously viewed Instagram as a go-to place for teaching inspiration, but was oh-so-wrong. I wanted to write a post to share some of the popular hashtags I check out, and inspiring teachers I follow.

Hashtags for Middle School Teachers

#teacherblogger (also, #teacherbloggers)

Other Popular Hashtags


People to Follow 

I chose the people to follow based off who is popular to follow, who posts consistently, and who posts inspiring content. 
Middle/High School (6th-12th)


Elementary Teachers (K-5th)

Do you have any favorite hashtags you follow? Do you know of any inspiring educators on Instagram? I’d love to hear them–share them in the comments!

    Aw, thanks for the shout out! Instagram is such a great place for teaching inspiration — I always joke that we should get PD credit for using it. 😉

    I’m used to Twitter and have found lots of hashtags there, but just wasn’t sure how to translate that knowledge to Instagram. Thank you very much for your help!
