7 Socially Conscious Educators to Follow on Instagram

Things are getting real for us teachers. In some professions, you might be able to ignore the catastrophic current events, but in teaching, you just can't. Our kids are incredibly resilient, but that doesn't mean they're not absorbing what's being said about them by our president elect and his supporters. I know some people might not feel it's our place to comment on these things as teachers, but I deeply feel that teaching itself is a political act. I'm grateful to the teachers who are speaking out and I wanted to share some of my favorite socially conscious educators to follow on instagram!

1. @instructandinspire
Gabby's feed is a mix of encouraging political posts and colorful school supplies.

2. @blackgirlsteach
This feed is inspiring for teachers and women of any race!

3. @love.tanesha
Tanesha's frequent use of the word unapologetic also perfectly describes her feed!

4. @theteacherspassport
Becca has the most beautiful feed and quotes!

5. @pedagogicstyle
Cute outfit posts + the best descriptions. Case in point: "I am currently collapsed on my couch and watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. My plan is to watch a dictator like and prejudiced evil wizard be defeated by love and courage."

6. @ms_farima
Farima is serious business! Think less cute and more #woke.

7. @mrsrussellsroom
Tamara does so much to unite and support teachers of color on social media! She is also hilarious.

Any other social justice-minded teachers I should check out?
