This morning I was putting together an Animoto slideshow of our week in the classroom. While I was watching the completed slideshow, I realized just how much my teaching has changed in just over a year. From what the students do to how they learn to how I teach, I feel like I’m just a shadow of my former self, and that’s not a bad thing.
I was about to tweet out the link to this slideshow, and that’s when I realized that I am nine followers short of 1200 people. These 1200 people are a combination of educators, parents, and administrators, all of whom read my tweets, answer my questions, and share their incredible ideas too. Wow! My PLN (Personal Learning Network) is amazing.
This is when I started to think to myself: imagine if all educators had 1200 people to connect with and learn from? How much better would we all be? Please consider this my very big thank you to my PLN: thank you for all that you have taught me and continue to teach me. I am a better teacher because of you!
