Thankful for These 50

2016 was an amazing year of growth for me both professionally and personally.

Professionally, I earned my administrator's license and learned the importance of being a connected educator.  Through this I not only gained more knowledge, but more importantly, a large group of educators that I know I can reach out to at any time for inspiration and motivation.  Personally, I gained a local group of friends who encouraged me to move more and I completed 14 races including a quarter marathon.  I’m so excited to see what 2017 brings in both areas of my life!

As I stated above, I am better educator because I found that social media & being connected makes me better.  Below is a list of 50 educators, chats, and resources that made me better in 2016.  Each one is a little different, but their overall goals are all the same - DO WHAT’S BEST FOR STUDENTS. I encourage you to follow them if you aren’t already.

Educators that make a difference!

  1. Jodie - your shout out is much appreciated! I am flattered that you would consider my Twitter posts, blog posts, ed chat comments, and educational insights among the other people on your list - many of whom I consider my "Edu Heroes".
