Pinterest is WONDERFUL! It can be used in so many different ways from your personal life to business to education. There are so many resources on Pinterest, you will want to create a teacher Pinterest account!  Let’s do that now!

Setting Up a Pinterest Account

You will want a separate account for your teacher and classroom pins.  Open Pinterest in your web browser.  Enter your email address and a password.

Creating a Pinterest Account

Now, enter your name, age, and gender.  Click on “Come On In”.

Create a Pinterest Account

You will need to select five topics to follow.  For my teacher account, I only follow educational Pinners.  You can select from a list or you can enter a keyword.

Follow Pinners

Pinterest will offer you the Pin Button.  I highly recommend clicking “Get It Now”.  This button will be put at the top of your browser so you can pin anything you come across.  You can also click “skip” if you do not want this button.

Give Pinterest a few seconds to build your feed!  You now have your Pinterest account!!!
