TTT and Connected Educators

“I am not a teacher, but an awakener.”  ― Robert Frost

I just finished a Google + hangout and it was awesommme. Teachers Teaching Teachers met at (9 p.m. est)

Paul Allison invited me to help to kick off Connected Educators Month with Teachers Teaching Teachers and I said YES!! His weekly broadcast coincided with Day 1 of Connected Educators month talked about what it all means to us, especially when we think about how important it is to be connected locally and physically as it is to be connected nationally or globally and virtually.  The Google + hangout participants were
— Paul Allison of the New York City Writing Project
–Darren Cambridge, director of the Connected Educators project
–Kevin Hodgson of the Western Massachusetts Writing Project;
–Pamela Moran, Superintendent of Albemarle County Public Schools and a teacher-consultant at the Central Virginia Writing Project
–Steve Moore of the Greater Kansas City Writing Project
–Karen Fasimpaur, founder and organizer of P2PU’s School of Ed.
–Jeff Lebow founder of and co-founder of (Jeff will be joining us late, perhaps with a class.)

and myself

–Valerie Burton of the Greater New Orleans Writing Project

We talked about so much and connected on so many different levels.  We are CONNECTED EDUCATORS and even though these people are part of my online PLN, I respect and admire and trust them.  They are people who help me better myself and my craft.  We are connected if only in a hangout, a tweet or a facebook post and I am grateful for it.
