TeachConnect is an altruistic network of pre-service, current and experienced teachers across Queensland. It’s free and always will be - because it’s owned by you, the teachers.
TeachConnect is a simple idea - a platform to let you talk to other teachers and to benefit from the experiences of others. Teachers tend to be generous in sharing their knowledge. TeachConnect is about making sure that this knowledge can be re-used by the whole community of Queensland teachers.
A mentorship circle is a private space to chat with a small group of peers and experienced teachers about anything and everything teaching related.
We’re building up a searchable repository of teaching knowledge for you to ask for, find and discuss valuable information.
In TeachConnect you get the best of both worlds: a private circle of trusted colleagues, and a large public community ready to answer anything you may want to ask.
