Thanks for your interest in connecting!

Because I receive hundreds of messages each day, I’m not able to answer all correspondence personally, and you’ll probably find it’s most efficient to use the FAQ below to get your question answered. Which of these areas do you need help with?

Guest blogging, ads, & partnerships

Do you accept guest bloggers?

Yes! If you’re a teacher or other education practitioner, I would love to have you share your practical teaching ideas on my blog. Just fill out this form. Please note that this opportunity is available only for educators and edubloggers: companies wishing to include links to their products or websites must submit sponsored guest blog posts.

Will you do a guest blog exchange or write a post for my site?

Typically, no. I’m sorry! I have a limited amount of time for writing blog posts, and my priority has to be creating content for my own blog.

How can I sponsor your podcast?

Truth for Teachers is weekly audio podcast designed to encourage and motivate teachers. With over 50,000 downloads per month, it consistently ranks in the top 10 K-12 podcasts in iTunes.

I accept one sponsor per podcast episode to feature in a 15 second pre-roll (advertisement placed at the beginning of the podcast, immediately after the theme song and introduction ends.)

As a podcast sponsor, you will receive:

  • Audio promotion: I will announce your company or product as a sponsor of the show, and record 15 seconds of promotion. You can specify exactly what you’d like me to say, or simply provide input on my suggested wording. This is a powerful form of advertisement, because listeners will hear me, personally, recommending your product.
  • Blog promotion: Each podcast episode has a blog post associated with it that contains a transcript and links to show resources. My website received over 8 million page views last year. As a podcast sponsor, your link and promotional copy is automatically included in the episode’s blog post at no additional charge.
  • Social media promotion: I promote every blog post and podcast episode widely on Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn. Currently I have over 13,000 highly engaged followers on Twitter, 135,000 on Facebook, and 45,000 on Pinterest. The link to the blog post and episode with your sponsorship information will be shared with this teacher community on social media indefinitely, particularly on Pinterest where I will re-advertise each older podcast episode on a regular basis.

Please fill out the contact form at the bottom of the page with your inquiry.

How can I purchase a sponsored blog post?

Sponsored post information can be found here.

Can you help spread the word about about our project/resource/organization?

Because my site averages over 700K pageviews a month, I have been inundated by requests from organizations wanting their programs, sites, and products featured on the site. Typically I feature these as sponsored blog posts (or sponsored guest blog posts) and only run them every 4-6 weeks to make sure my content is of the highest quality. All available ad rates and sponsorship opportunities are explained here in clear detail so you can find the best match for your needs.

I don’t have a budget—can you help me promote my book/product/site for free?

I would like to be able to help you spread the word. I know it’s hard when you’re starting out. However, it’s a difficult situation because I have my own projects to promote (4 books, online courses and memberships, and tons of curricular materials I sell on TeachersPayTeachers.)  It’s very tough to let readers know about the resources I’ve made and truly believe in while still keeping my blog and social media accounts focused on strong, product-free content.

My commitment to sharing practical, free information 90% of the time leaves very, very few opportunities to promote other people’s stuff, and because I could be using those slots to sell my own resources, I need to be well-compensated for giving up that opportunity. I hope you can understand that. I’ve spent more than 14 years building my online presence and the trust of my readers, and I take it very seriously.

Will you help share my fundraiser/Donor’s Choose/Kickstarter project?

I get requests to share fundraisers multiple times per week, and unfortunately, I can’t accommodate all of those requests and still stay focused on sharing useful content and practical resources for my readers. If you want help promoting a Donor’s Choose project, try Caring Classrooms.

Will you review/promote my book for teachers?

I occasionally review books that have a broad appeal to a diverse group of educators and that fit with the overarching themes on my blog (practical instructional strategies, classroom management, teacher motivation, stress management, etc.) I generally do not review books that only appeal to a small niche of teachers.

You are welcome to email me and ask if your book is a good fit for my site. Please keep in mind that authors and their agents/publishers email me on a daily basis with these requests so I am only able to accept a very small number of them. I will respond to your email only if I feel like the book is a good fit for the blog and my editorial schedule can accommodate it.

Will you review/promote my children’s book?

I get multiple requests every week to review children’s books, so out of fairness, I have a blanket policy of saying no to all children’s book review requests.

Will you review/promote my book that’s targeted toward parents or the general public?

My audience is comprised of teachers, so I only write about topics that are directly related to teaching.

Can you mentor/coach me?

I wish that I had the available time to do individual coaching and mentoring! I do, however, have hundreds of pages of resources here on the site to help you along. And twice a year, I open the 40 Hour Teacher Workweek Club to new members, and that’s a great way to get the support you need.

Can you help me get started as an educational consultant?

Yes! I have entire section of my website dedicated to Edupreneur resources, including pages on how to start and monetize a teaching blog and publish your own book. I also have a course  on how to transition into educational consulting which allows you to “pick my brain” a bit. 

Can I connect with you on social media?

I’d love that. Choose whichever platform you prefer–I’m pretty much everywhere!
