Teach Thought 30 Day Blogging Challenge- Day 22
Let's not think of PLNs as Professional Learning Networks or a Personal Learning Network. I would like to think of the concept as Passionate Learning Networks. Because that is what it is. A group of energetic and spirited educators meeting to give/share ideas and give each other support in the teaching journey.
My PLN is filled with just that. Dedicated, fiery, motivating, caring and adventuresome teachers. I have found mine out in Twittersphere and even though I have never met them face to face, they are dear colleagues of mine. I had been looking for them for years now, looking to find teachers who want to navigate uncharted waters, for ones who question the status quo and take on tasks without an idea of where they are leading or if they are even going to get paid for their efforts.
Thank you #langchat for energizing me and refueling my efforts to keep me abreast with specific language trends so that I can be a great language teacher. I enjoy the weekly chats on Thursday nights!
And thank you #reflectiveteacher , Justine Hughes and the Teach Thought 30 Day Blogging Challenge for promoting reflection on the larger education ideas and overarching initiatives that help me as well. I am learning so much from all of you and look forward to continuing the journey!
