3 Reasons You’ll Want To Join Our Community of Educators
At Spaces, we know that community and connection are everything.
With a team made up of education professionals, The Spacetronauts is a community created to meet your needs. In this growing community, we are bringing together K-12 teachers to share their unique stories, experiences, and ideas related to digital portfolios, going gradeless, SEL, 21st-century skills, and teaching in general.
Get answers to your most challenging questions, tackle new teaching experiences with confidence, and learn faster and more efficiently in ways we just can’t do on our own.

Not only will you gain access to these resources, but you’ll also be able to discuss and interact with other teachers who are implementing the same lesson plans as you. Learn from other teachers across the country, and see what teaching strategies they iutilize in their classrooms.
Network with Spacetronauts Across The Country
The Spacetronauts Community is constantly growing! As we travel to different conferences throughout the year, we have the opportunity to meet many inspiring teachers along the way. Oftentimes we encourage the teachers we meet to join our Spacetronauts community so we can continue to build connections and expand on conversations.
Our community is thriving with educators from many different districts, each with their own unique teaching strategies and philosophies. The feed is a great place for teachers to pose questions and offer insight from their own experiences. We see many educators build new connections with other teachers who have been in their shoes. The Spacetronauts Community is a great way to connect and learn from other teachers in districts across the country.
Learn and Share Tips With Other Teachers
The Spacetronauts Community is a great place to share classroom tips and tricks with other teachers. Many of our teachers bounce ideas off of each other to help with developing teaching strategies, implementing 21st century skills into their classrooms, or simply re-engaging students during remote learning.
We recently asked our community members:
What do you hope to get out of a community of peers?
Here’s what our Spacetronauts had to say:
- Support and additional aid from professionals who are in the same space I am in.
- I am always interested in learning new ideas and sharing the ones that I have found to be helpful.
- Great ideas for teaching, learning, and running a smooth classroom.
- Collaboration opportunities and shared resources!
- Ideas for how to use spaces with my students.
As we continue to grow and adapt Spaces, we lean on our community of educators for feedback and insight. Spaces is continuing to be shaped by the voices of our teachers who let us know exactly what is and isn’t working in the classroom. By joining our Spacetronauts community of educators, you’re joining our mission to capture student growth in the classroom through authentic assessment.
