How to add a teacher or co-teacher to your class

All teachers have the same permissions. This means that co-teachers can approve, delete, or edit posts, invite and approve family members, and edit the class list.

  1. Tap your Profile Icon and select the class you want to add a co-teacher to.
  2. Tap the wrench in the top right corner and tap Manage Teachers.
  3. Type in your co-teacher's email address and tap Invite teacher.
  4. Your co-teacher will receive an email with a special invite link. They should click the link to accept your invite. They can create a new Seesaw account or sign in to an existing account.

If your co-teacher did not receive the email, you can send an invite link from the Seesaw website:

  1. Sign in at Select the class you want to add a co-teacher to.
  2. Tap the wrench in the top right corner.
  3. Tap Manage Teachers.
  4. Tap Click here to generate a co-teacher invite link.
  5. Send this link to them and they can sign up as a co-teacher in your class. This link can only be used once and expires after 7 days.

Please note that adding a co-teacher to your Seesaw for Schools class does not provide co-teachers with access to Seesaw premium features.

  • Seesaw's premium features are only available to the teacher who is on a Seesaw for Schools subscription or is on a Premium Features trial.
  • Teachers who should be part of a Seesaw for Schools subscription will need to be approved or added by a Seesaw for Schools admin in addition to being added as a co-teacher on a class. 

Note for ClassLink SSO users: to access Seesaw, you won't be able to use co-teacher links. Please ask an administrator to add any co-teachers to any new classes. Administrators can add teachers to any class by clicking to edit the teacher on the Teachers tab.
