Social Media Butterfly
Ms. Ellies is a young teacher who is trying to make her way into her new school with students and parents. She accepts all social media requests from parents and students. She posts regularly about her social activities with friends outside of school and sometimes posts pictures with students in class during class activities for her friends to see. Mrs. Ford, one of the more experienced teachers advised her to be careful with her post, but Ms. Ellies didn't listen.
Concerned for her behavior Mrs. Ford wants to take action without hurting Ms. Ellies, as she is new and very enthusiastic teacher who engages students in their learning.
What could Mrs. Ford do in this case?

Mrs. Ford should review school policy before taking any action. If Ms. Ellies actions is not breaking any rules in the process then there is little to be done. However, if she is breaking rules in the process, Mrs. Ford might want to reach out to administration to inform them of how Ms. Ellies has been handling her social media in regards to the students.

Keep advising. Monitor the social media. Let the new teacher know if she crosses the line.

In my personal opinion I think that the best thing for her to do would be to make a completely seperate instagram or facebook page so that way she can post things or pictures about her students and not have to worry about anything else getting flagged or her getting in trouble. Another thing that I think would be important would be to get a waiver from the parents giving her consent to be able to post pictures of the students.

This is a new way to communicate with parents in this modern age. I think this type of contact is a great idea for teacher and parent relationship and communication. I agree that adding students on Facebook is odd, but depending on the student age it does not seem like a problem. Mrs. Ford should review school policy, but if Ms. Ellies is doing nothing wrong drop the situation and mind her own business.

I would have Mrs. Ford continue monitoring the social media accounts and if Ms. Ellies crosses the line or goes against a school rule, she should inform Ms. Ellies of the breach. If Ms. Ellies still doesn't comply then I would speak with the Principal.

If Ms. Ellies is not breaking any of the school rules then there is not much Mrs. Ford can do. She has given her insight on the situation but it is up to Ms. E to tone down her social media usage. If she happens to cross the line, and Mrs. Ford becomes aware of it, she should step in at that point.
