My professional online identity is pretty respectful. As I was looking up myself online I discovered that it is mostly my social media accounts, basketball stuff, and education posts. Frankly, if anyone who knew me searched me up online they would expect everything that came up. I made my Facebook and Instagram private. I also made my Facebook name harder to search. Once I started my education program, I tried really hard to make sure my online identity was ‘clean’. I would not want my students to find something inappropriate about me. I also advise my friends to withhold embarrassing posts about me. I feel like as a teacher you can have a separate life that your students do not have to worry about. For example, teachers can go out for drinks with friends but I do not think the students have to know. Teachers do not want to promote drinking towards their students and that’s why it should remain hidden. On the other hand, if teachers go on a beautiful vacation, the pictures that were taken are defiantly appropriate to share. What I’m trying to say is, teachers/pre-service teachers must understand what they can and cannot post online. I would say that if any of my students/players I coach looked me up online they would not find anything wrong.
