Just now I was bored and forgot to thaw the chicken for dinner #wifefail. I got on Twitter and popped into a great chat. I honestly at one point tweeted to the moderator "It's like we are one mind" his statements were dead on with my beliefs. I have a new friend in New Jersey who hates homework and grades as much as I do.
Meeting my CatholicEdChat friends at NCEA was life changing experience. I feel like I have made friends for life who are more than just colleagues, they are there for me in prayer and support. And when someone like Alice Keeler favorites one of your tweets it just makes your day and you feel like you have joined that elite group of educators who are changing the world.
We all have something to learn from each other. I have never considered myself an extrovert, I wasn't the popular girl in school. But I am a connected educator. Twitter allows me to "break the ice" with people I normally would never have connected with before. It keeps me at the top of my game. More importantly, it's fun! There are some seriously funny educators out there! It's the place to voice your true feelings about education, the tough days, the difficult parents. We all have them. The stories are the same the names are anonymous, and we can all appreciate each other's struggles and rejoice in each other's accomplishments.
So get on board. Follow me @ChristineMonge. #joininthefun
