Guidelines for your teacher profile photo

Put your best face forward by uploading a teacher profile photo! This photo will display on all of your projects, donations, and comments around the website. Uploading a profile photo is optional--but posting one is a great way to invite donors to learn more about you and support your classroom projects.

Here's a few tips to get started:


  • Be friendly and professional
  • Make eye contact
  • Face the camera
  • Wear an outfit you would wear to work


  • Clip art or student work--use student work for your classroom photo instead
  • Inappropriate objects or logos
  • Photos without you
  • Animals or landscapes
