Laura Stelsel is director of marketing & communications at Kappa Delta Pi.
Here are a few things you need to do and know to get the most out of your KDP membership now that you’re a graduate:
Update your contact information: This is CRUCIAL if you want to continue accessing our free publications and resources. And it takes just a few seconds! Log into MyKDP and click on My Account > My KDP Profile to update your info today.
Know your login info: Or at least know how to request it time and time again. Many of our resources are for members only, and you’ll want to be able to access them when you need them. If you’ve forgotten your info, it just takes one second to request it.
Get new teacher resources: KDP has a whole line of resources for the first-year teacher, like the New Teacher Advocate and the New Teacher Community in KDP Global. Once the new school year begins, monthly New Teacher Tip emails are sent to new teachers with recommended resources.
Ask questions (and get answers): You are a part of a nearly 40,000-teacher network. Use it! Post questions in KDP Global and get replies from your trusted comrades. In fact, we’ve started a discussion thread for you to do just that.
Get funding: We award grant funding to teachers every year through our Classroom Teacher Grants. More than 50 per year, in fact!
Show us your pride: Now through June 15, we’re running our annual Graduate with Pride photo contest. Submit your photo for a chance to win.
We are so proud of all that you have accomplished and look forward to serving you in the many wonderful years of teaching you have ahead of you.
