10 incredible teacher Instagram accounts you really need to follow

Instagram for teachers, the world’s largest and most positive teacher’s lounge, filled with positive teachers who love to collaborate and share their ideas.

That’s a bit different than in real life, don’t you think? Here are some amazing teacher Instagram accounts you must follow to get inspiration or just compassion and sympathy for the hard work you put in that only teachers will understand.

Quotes and humor

1. Teaching humor

Teaching Humor is an Instagram account maintained by a fellow teacher. The teacher shares teaching humor memes and images to brighten up all our teaching days. Most teachers can relate to these memes. That’s what makes it so much fun.

Are you teaching a class with older students who appreciate humor? Why not just make a “meme wall” in our classroom with all these fun quotes? Fun guaranteed! Water Bottle flip

2. The unhelpful teacher

To understand your students, you might follow this Instagram account. You will laugh and ask yourself if you’re just like the unhelpful teacher. After a while going through the posts, you will admit that the unhelpful teacher and you are actually the same person (in some aspects).

Remember having that “meme wall”? Add another wall where students can put on memes about unhelpful teachers. Make sure to put in some rules. You will laugh and it might even help you to improve your teaching.

3. Bored teachers

Bored teachers' motto is simple: “We live, we laugh & we love what we do. We’re teachers, but we’re human too!”.

Teachers inspire and create geniuses. Teaching “must” be the best job in the world. Not all of that is true, because we’re human too.

Bored teachers post funny quotes and memes about the ordinary life of a teacher. A life full of ups and downs, problems and solutions, imagination and inspiration and students you (don’t) love.

4. Teachers things

Teacher things' account is about teaching humor, advice, tips and stories. It looks a lot like the other accounts above I’ve just described. But fun quotes and memes never get old.

Classroom DIY creates and shares classroom craftiness. When you’re looking for ideas and inspiration, this is the place to be.

The last Instagram account I recommend you to follow is “From the pond”.

No budget? Don’t worry. You can always just use it for inspiration and create your own illustrations.
