Why Do You Teach? Instagram #ITeachBecause for a Chance to Win!


Why did you go into teaching? Were you motivated by a teacher of your own? Or did you want to make the world a better place, one student at a time? Show us what sparked your love for teaching by posting a picture to Instagram and tagging it with #ITeachBecause. Your picture could win you and a fellow teacher gift cards to the ASCD store.



Between now and Friday, March 27, 2015, snap a picture that shows why you teach and share it on Instagram. Tag a fellow teacher and add the #ITeachBecause hashtag, and you will both be entered for a chance to win gift cards to the ASCD store.

The #ITeachBecause giveaway begins March 23, 2015, and ends March 27, 2015, at 11:59 p.m. eastern time. To enter, just follow these three simple steps:

  • Follow @OfficialASCD.
  • Post a picture that illustrates why you teach.
  • Include #ITeachBecause and a tag fellow teacher.

One winner will receive two gift cards to the ASCD Store—one for them and one for the teacher tagged in their Instagram post.

The winners will be announced here and on ASCD’s Instagram account on April 3, 2015. Read all of the fine print here.
