Hold on with me here for a second while I explain.
I’m not smart because I graduated a straight-A student from high school, college (in Chemistry & Business), and graduate school (MBA). Wait – I did get one A-. Dang you, Sociology 101!
I’m smart for another reason. For an important secret I learned at a very young age. One I used in school, college, corporate life, and now more than ever – in my own business.
Have you ever heard this saying?
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
I think Jim Rohn is the originator, and I hear it all the time because of a daily podcast by John Lee Dumas, but it is totally my secret.
You become who you hang around. For better or for worse…
So how does this secret apply to social media for your school?
Well, if you handle social media for your school, you may feel like you are on a deserted island. Let’s face it – when you start talking about Facebook algorithm, reach, and Twitter impressions – your co-workers’ eyes glaze over, and they look at you like you’re talking another language.
Start talking about submitting photos or social media policy – and I bet they run away!
It’s time to connect with the most influential social media leaders for schools. We’ve teamed up with the best to deliver training on the topics you need help with! Each one-hour session will feature 30 minutes of presentation time followed by 30 minutes of Q&A inside of Facebook Live.

Owner and CEO | #SocialSchool4EDU
I’m your host! I founded #SocialSchool4EDU back in 2014. It was built on a passion to celebrate students and connect communities. My team manages social media for more than 30 districts and has trained over 500 schools across the country.
If FOMO (fear of missing out) has not taken over yet, then you don’t understand the magnitude of these speakers! They are the go-to leaders in social media to find out best practices, tips, strategies for growth, and just the best inspiration a person could ask for.
For just $197 (and only $147 until May 20th), you can take part in this virtual day of training. Beyond just the presentations and the live Q&A, we will have a guidebook to walk you through taking notes during the various topics. This is a “get training and feel ready to take action for your school” kind of day!
We are connecting on Wednesday, July 26th, from 11:00am – 5:00pm EST. Every presentation and Q&A session will be recorded and sent out to registered campers. I realize this is summer vacation, but I can guarantee this is one day you won’t mind dedicating to your work. It will pay you back the entire year with peace of mind, powerful connections and helpful resources.
And if you can only tune in for a few live sessions, you can catch them all via the recordings.
It’s a well-known secret. You have to hang around awesome people. And in professional development for social media – this is the best there is.
When you register, you can pay through credit card or PayPal. It’s worth it on your own, but some of you may even get reimbursed from your school. Here is a printable PDF form if you need it. You can also grab even more information at camp.socialschool4edu.com.
Your students and staff deserve to be celebrated in a bigger way next year! This small investment could yield incredible returns for your school, and I can’t wait to meet you inside Social Media Camp. Grab your spot now!
