I am constantly learning each and every day from those that are part of my Professional Learning Network (PLN). I am inspired and motivated to try new things and encourage other educators to do the same. I find a sense of euphoria while on Twitter. I was trying to figure out why I am always so happy while reading and posting on Twitter. I think it is because while on Twitter I am surrounded by people that are encouraging one another, facing and conquering challenges, and continuing to improve their practices and do what is best for kids. My challenge to myself is to take that same intense joy and energy that is felt while on Twitter and infuse it into the regular day.
If you haven't heard/seen/read there are some new bloggers in FSUSD!! Take some time to read the blog, "FSUSD Innovates" co-authored by Steve Trotter, Colleen Hutchinson, and Allison Klein. I have a feeling that a few more authors will join this amazing group of innovative educators very soon. http://baconplate.blogspot.com/
One of our very own Ed Tech's Andy Meyers has an amazing blog, "Embracing the Whole." He is part of the #IMOOC with George Couros, and Andy is taking on the #IMOOC with a gusto: https://edutechandy.wordpress.com/
