I follow many “famous” teachers on Instagram. Teachers with thousands of followers and who are Tpt sellers.
Lately I have noticed that have all been posting in their stories about 2 particular other Instagrammers and I can’t figure out why. Like what are they getting out of it?
First they were all posting about someone named Kaysee (spelling? And I don’t know her Instagram name). Kaysee is offering a free course in how to be a better tpt seller. But seriously so many of them are promoting her.

Now tonight they are all promoting thesuperheroteacher. This one redecorates classrooms. In my opinion her decorating is over the top and wouldn’t fly in my district. She does things like replaces the floors and paints the walls etc. We aren’t allowed to do that so I find it strange to begin with. But what I find stranger is all these people are promoting her in their Instagram stories.

One teacher who I follow (queenofirstgradejungle) actually commented on this in her stories tonight saying it was weird how everyone posting about these people.

I’m rambling but I don’t get why they are all posting about these 2 people! What is in it for them??

(Excuse any typos/grammar as I am typing this as I rock my baby to sleep.)

What's in it for these "influencers" is the payback as in "I will scratch your back and then you will scratch my back." This is what happens on TPT as well. I find it disturbing that teachers participate in this .

This is exactly why I stopped following "Instagram" teachers. I'm not saying they are all like this but it seems like it's all rainbows and unicorns with them.



If I'm going to spend some time on Instagram, I'm looking at cute puppies.

I haven't noticed the Kayce one but I do the SuperHeroTeacher one.

I am starting to unfollow some as there is A LOT of preaching going on, telling teachers what to do and what not to do. Also I dislike promos that want you to buy really expensive educational or not educational things. There was a big push for an expensive vocab program awhile back, then those Otto Stools. I'm a teacher. I have no money. lol
