A new look for your teacher account

We got great feedback from lots of teachers like you about how you get around your account on our site. We've incorporated this into a beautiful new design, and we're so excited to show it off! Here's a quick intro to get you going.

All of your important info is now easily accessible from your personal dropdown menu. You can access your classroom projects, view and update your account information, change your email preferences, and more.

Not a teacher? Check out our guide for donors.

The Projects tab will look very familiar. You can still create a new project, manage your drafts and live projects, and check the order status of a fully funded project. Plus, you now have quick access to information about match offers and Donations you've received right where you need it most.

The new Private info tab contains your personal information. You can access your account credits and gift cards.

You can also update your name and title, email address, and other personal contact information from the Private info tab.

Make sure to scroll down and click Save changes whenever you update your information!

In the new Public info tab, you can customize how you publicly appear on the site. You can upload and crop your classroom photo and your profile photo (more on this below!), customize your public profile URL, edit the welcome message that appears on your public profile, and even enable Facebook Automatic Updates.

You'll also make any changes to your school information and teaching details in the Public info tab. You can even customize how you appear when you donate to projects on the site (including your own).

Now, you have the option to upload a profile photo - this photo will display on all of your projects along with your classroom photo, and it will also display if you donate to a project publicly.

If you've created a Giving page, you'll have a dedicated tab just for that.

There's plenty to see, so take a look around! If you have trouble finding anything, or just have a question about the change, don't be shy: Contact us.
