A special request from Teachers.Net
Teachers.Net has grown to be the number one teacher's website, exclusively through word of mouth. You can help Teachers.Net grow and help improve your online teacher community, by posting the Teachers.Net Staffroom Flyer at your school.
Our request is a simple one, but very important. Teachers.Net is the world's largest online network for teachers - over the past decade, connecting over a million teachers around the world. Every teacher who contributes to Teachers.Net, through submitting a lesson or participating in a discussion, or even just reads materials on the network, helps make this giant peer support network one peer greater.
In other words, by helping spread the word about Teachers.Net, YOU play a crucial role in empowering your teacher colleagues here on Teachers.Net.
As an important favor, we’re asking any teachers who can, to print out our one-page Teachers.Net Staffroom Flyer, and post it in your lounge at your school. You can download the file in seconds at this link:
If you write for your school or district's newsletter, or any other publication that is read by teachers, you can help us spread the word by passing on links to the most useful of resources on Teachers.Net:
