Because of you Twitter I have been engaging and relevant in the following ways:

  • Discussed the power of Twitter as it relates to education with Professor Vincent Cho of Boston College
  • Participated in a live streaming chat on social media in schools with Asbury Park Press reporter Alesha Boyd
  • Presented at Edcamp Leadership on the importance of Twitter in Educator’s lives
  • Host a weekly Twitter chat called #Sathat with fellow PLN friend Scott Rocco @scottrrocco
  • Have access to over 600 PLN members where we share ideas, articles, docs and collaborate
  • Publish a weekly blog post called Engaged and Relevant (Achieved 1,000 hits for monty of July)
  • Share the power of Twitter at monthly subject area department meetings during the school year
  • Blast out a Daily Bundlenut containing useful EdLinks related to the field of education
  • Written articles on the power of social media in schools for various newspapers
  • Have been welcomed as a contributing member of the TeacherCast family
  • Have access to great minds such as Todd Whitaker and Principal El in the field of education

Most importantly, because of you Twitter I have become a more well-rounded educator who brings back the ideas shared to our classrooms in order to promote the success of all students.

Thank you Twitter.
