Social Media Basics for Teachers to Drive Parent Engagement

Social Media Basics for Teachers to Drive Parent Engagement

January 25, 2019

In this podcast, I give some basic social media advice for teachers to help them engage with their parents. Social media is a very powerful tool.

Social Media Basics for Teachers

I do a traveling social media roadshow to all of our campuses in CFBISD to help encourage social media usage among our teachers.

The purpose of my talks is to speak on the power of storytelling through social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I feel most parents care more about their child's school than the district as a whole.

Teachers, administration and staff must tell the stories to the parents. They need to make the parents feel that made the best decision when it comes to the education of heir child.

Social Media is an excellent communication tool for teachers as more and more parents want to interact with their child's teacher on a daily basis.

Don’t laugh. This is not too far out of left field. Over the past three years there has been a resurgence of the journalism occupation. Not necessarily in the form of a traditional newspaper, but the need for people who can tell your story has become very important.

With the increasing popularity of blogs and content marketing, we will need these storytellers more than ever. And we need someone who can do it at the local level.

Valuable School Marketing Lessons from HBO’s “The Wire”

Valuable School Marketing Lessons from HBO’s “The Wire”

July 23, 2017

The Wire, which aired on HBO, is hands down my favorite television show of all time. The gritty drama that told the story of the streets of Baltimore felt so real. A textured portrait of an American city in decline, told many stories, and taught us many lessons. 

Reexamining the show many years later, I realized it not only taught us lessons on life, but it also taught lessons we can use in School Public Relations and School Marketing.

In this podcast, I will examine SCHOOL MARKETING and SCHOOL COMMUNICATIONS by using quotes from the shows most interesting characters:

  • Expand Your Comfort Zone - 2:01
  • Learn More... Achieve More - 2:48
