TeacherPop is a blog for new teachers written by teachers and hosted by Teach For America. It provides real talk, tips, and activities that teachers can use in the classroom. Writers offer uncommon wisdom for the challenges new teachers face, sharing everything from difficult reflections on their darkest days to quick tips for sprucing up the classroom.

TeacherPop is all about promoting authenticity and transparency. What does that mean? It means less jargon. It means talking about the good, as well as the bad. It means being comfortable admitting what we don’t know and celebrating mistakes as learning opportunities.

We’re out to connect new teachers and get them sharing their expertise, passions, and perspective, and recognize that teachers’ lives contain much more than what they do in the classroom.
