Pinterest, probably the largest virtual teacher gathering. Ideas, inspiration and amazing teacher resources. Just. Pinterest.

I took the time to investigate Pinterest - that’s why I love my job - and made a list of 10 Pinterest accounts and boards any teacher should follow.

Ready for the inspiration bomb? Here we go!

Get ideas on these Pinterest accounts for teachers

1. Teachers on Pinterest

This is the number one teacher account you should follow. No kidding. You can find everything here.

The account is divided into 32 boards. The boards concern topics per grade level, course or education themes like “classroom decor” or “mobile learning”.

For fun science projects, you should take a look at their “science” board.

3. Teacher Outfits

Yes, I’m serious. Teacher outfits. Don’t know what to wear for class or what’s (in)appropriate? Take a look at this page and get some teacher fashion ideas!

Someone should really open a store just for teacher clothes! Or you can combine your clothes like the lady on the picture below.

Students might think otherwise, but teachers laugh as well. I can’t count every “teacher humor” board on Pinterest. There are so many! This means you can laugh with your teacher problems and issues until your cheeks get sore.
