Giving Thanks

Today is Thanksgiving in Canada so I thought it would be appropriate to write about how thankful I am that I found the MTBoS community. I wouldn't have this blog without the MTBoS community and without Twitter. I am so thankful that my colleague @cya_outside introduced me to Twitter and I am so glad that I have found some amazing educators to follow. My mission this week for Explore MTBoS is to spend some more time on Twitter. So, I guess I am about to put myself out there further and interact with new people or with people I follow but have never contacted. There are some people that seem to me like Twitter "Rock Stars" who I can't imagine would be interested in hearing from me, but they are just teachers like me! I think that's the point of the Explore MTBoS missions....they are meant to stretch you beyond your comfort zone. I think this will also help me to expand my PLN. There is so much going on that is so inspiring. So, thanks to the MTBoS for helping me to become a better teacher. Hopefully, one day soon I will have more to add that will help others become better teachers as well.

    1. So far I am loving the Explore MTBoS mission 2 as it is helping me expand my PLN. I think I also have some ideas for more blog posts, so maybe I will be able to help others after all! Thanks for all your help. I am loving being a part of the #msmathchat!

  2. That's how I feel, too. Not only do I think that those "rock stars" of Twitter and math teaching couldn't possible care about what I have to say, I also sometimes don't feel "smart" enough to contribute to the conversation...MTBoS is forcing me to get over it!

    1. It is forcing me too also, and you know what, I'm so glad! Thanks for reading.
