Connect Section: Search and browse teachers that you would like to connect with. You can connect with teachers who are teaching similar grades and subjects as you, fellow alumni from your teaching program, or teachers who have the same interests as you. You can follow these teachers to see their posts in Discover, and start messages with them to exchange ideas and collaborate with them.
