TeachersConnect FAQ

I forgot my password

If you forget your password, you can still access TeachersConnect after a few simple steps.

1. On the TC login page, click ‘Sign In,’ and if you type an incorrect password or leave the password blank, you will see the Help banner in the image below.

2. Click ‘Need help?’.


3. Type in your email.

4. Click ‘Reset.’ This will send an email to you with a link to reset your password for TC.

Note: If you do not receive the password reset email within a few minutes, or do not remember which email you set up your TC account with, try another email. In the event you still do not receive the password reset email, you should create a new TC account. Return to teachersconnect.online and click ‘Sign Up.’


5. In the email, click ‘Reset Password.’


6. Finally, type your new password in both fields, and click ‘Reset.’

Setting the Audience of Your Posts

  1. Click the “Audience” button under the text box
  2. Click the community select drop down menu
  3. Choose your desired community
Note: If you do not use the “Audience” button, then your post or question will appear to the entire TeachersConnect Community.

What data about me can the rest of the TeachersConnect community see?

Your profile, posts, questions, comments, answers, followers, people you are following, date you joined TeachersConnect, and your recent activity are viewable to all members on TeachersConnect. Other users cannot see your email address, password, or anonymous questions, but the rest of your profile is viewable by the TeachersConnect community.

What does TeachersConnect do with the information collected?

We use the information to tailor your experience to you and to limit the distraction of conversations that are not relevant to you. For example, if you teach AP Chemistry, we’ll make sure that your TeachersConnect experience isn’t dominated by strategies for early literacy instruction (unless you’ve identified early literacy instruction as a particular area of interest).

TeachersConnect also provides the data to organizations and companies who are working to improve education. For example, we partner with Teacher Preparation Programs to provide them with data to improve their programs. Please refer to our privacy policy for more information about what we do with the data we collect.
