Google Classroom - Collaborating with other teachers

Do you have a collaborating teacher or support staff that would like to have access to your class assignments?  That's easy to do with Google Classroom.  Simply go to the About page and click on the link to "invite teacher" to add anyone within your school domain.  It is a great feature for those of us that share students with other support staff to save time sending emails about what we covered in class on a particular day.  

Just remember, if you have invited someone to be a teacher in your Google Classroom, they have all of the rights that you do, so they can add and delete posts, see student information, send emails and more. 

Watch the video to see the steps on how to invite a teacher. 


  1. I'm glad you added the "just remember" part. I invited a fellow teacher and she was inundated with responses and comments made by my students. I do wish there was a way around that.

    1. She can go into the settings for Google classroom and turn off the notifications. Click on the three lines in the upper left corner of classroom (some people Call it the hot dogs) and scroll all the way to the bottom to settings. Uncheck the box for email notifications.

      I've done that myself because I hate all of the notifications. Then I decided to create a filter in Gmail to put all of my classroom updates in a folder.

      Hope this helps.
