Self-Promotion, Part 1: Educators’ Changing Views on Humility, Humble Bragging, and Sharing Successes Through Social Media

Rae Pica, Tom Whitby, Eric Sheninger, Joe Mazza, Tony Sinanis, Joe Sanfelippo

It’s a relatively new phenomenon: educators sharing their successes on social media. For some this is a major breach of the humility many educators feel is required of those in the profession. But a new generation of educators is pushing back on this notion and using PR and marketing strategies to brand their schools and tell their stories. We invited five educators on the leading edge of this issue to talk with uncommon candor about the culture clash between traditional educator values and those of the social media culture.
