My Twitter experience and the start of this blog two weeks ago today is much like what Rick said to Captain Renault in the 1942 movie Casablanca, “I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
I’m amazed at the number of people I have met, the incredible resources they are so willing to share (or find) 24-7 across this magnificent world. Dedicated educators committed to making a difference in the lives of children. Two weeks ago, I had no idea the power of virtual colleagues.
As I write this now, I feel empowered. My newly started PLN is what I’ve always needed and wanted in my professional career. Teaching is all about relationships. Relationships with our students, our colleagues, our parents and community. But now, my vision is expanded and it doesn’t have walls or boundaries for either teachers or students! The possibilities are really endless! Thank you, PLN! This really is the beginning of a beautiful friendship!
