Instagram Linky Party

Sorry for the double post, but I am linking up with 
Apples ad ABC's and What The Teacher Wants to share the love on Instagram!  

I have had a personal account on Instagram for a while, but recently I joined in with a ton of other teachers and got an account for my class/blog. It has been SO much fun sharing and connecting with other teachers.  

If you'd like to connect with me, you can follow my class/blog account here:

and if you'd like to follow my personal account, find it here:
Each Tuesday  teachers everywhere will use Instagram to post a picture with the hashtag: 

The idea is, on Tuesdays, if we all all use this hashtag, we will be able to search teachers near and far, and create a community that can support and grow together.  For your picture each Tuesday, choose anything that you want to share with other teachers.  They will be able to see your picture when you click on the phrase: #teachertalktuesday

Here is a little Instagram 101 per Michelle:
1. It is like Facebook, but with only pictures
2. You can make your profile private if you want
3. You can  write a caption under your picture and comment or like photos
4.  To hashtag, just use the number (pound) sign (#) and then write your tag with no spaces

Here are some of my favorite pictures over the last couple of weeks =)

  2. Jennifer,
    I need help! I too have a personal Instagram Account that I would love to keep for all of my family pictures. Is there a way to create a new Instagram account that isn't linked to my personal facebook account??? I would love to link up with you all on Tuesdays...let me know if you have any helpful tips or ideas that might help!

    1. Hi Melanie! You can make both! Get on your phone on the instagram app and log out. It'll then give you the option to sign in or register. Click register and sign up with a new account! You will have to use a different email and it'll ask if you want to link to facebook and you click no. If you can't figure it out, shoot me an email at and I'll help you out!
