How do I sign up for Candler's Classroom Connections?
It's best to sign up with your home email address because your school email may block the newsletters. Or you can sign up with BOTH emails so you get the information at school and at home! Choose either of the two methods below!
- Method 1 - Enter your email address in the green Sign Up box at the right. Click the Sign Up button and confirm your subscription by entering your email address again. Then click the button that says "Save Profile Changes." If you want to add another email address, just return to this page and follow the steps again. That's it!
- Method 2 - Now you can also sign up with your cell phone! Just text CCC to 42828 and follow the instructions!
- Method 3 - As a last resort, if those methods don't work for you, enter your email address in the Google Doc form and I'll add your email manually. With this method you will not receive an email confirmation but you will get access to the newsletter subscriber freebies.

I signed up, but I never received the Welcome message and I haven't received any newsletters. What's wrong?
If you sign up but don't get email, here are a few ideas to help you troubleshoot the problem:
- You accidentally typed your email address incorrectly. If you think this could be the problem, try again.
- You signed up with a school email address and it's being blocked. The easiest solution is to use a personal email address.
- Your email program (such as Outlook) or your virus protection program is blocking the emails. Check your junk mail folders and your spam folders. Lately I've been finding messages from my best friends there, so they will trap just about anything! If you find an email from me, figure out how to add the email to your safe sender list. It's different for every program, but all I have to do is right-click on the email and choose "Add to Safe Sender list."
What do I do if I used to receive your newsletters, but I'm not anymore?
- What Happened: Over the last few years, my list grew to over 44,000 subscribers, but many of those email addresses were not active. On December 21, 2014, I removed over 23,000 non-working email addresses, but it's possible that some working email addresses were removed by mistake.
- What to Do: To resubscribe or confirm your subscription, enter your email address using this subscription link. If you end up on a page saying that you are updating your profile, just click the submit link to be sure you reactivate your account. You will receive a welcome letter that has a link to the newsletter archives. From there you can access all the newsletters you missed.
- If that doesn't work: fill out an online Google Doc form and I will add you back to the list. However, you will not get a welcome message, and you will have to wait for the next email to come out.
What if I want to cancel my subscription?
If you want to cancel at any time, just click the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of any newsletter.
Is my email address safe?
Yes! You have my pledge that your email address will never be sold or used for anything other than to provide newsletters and updates regarding the Teaching Resources website.
