Tonight I was on Twitter. It was amazing. I was able to offer advice to several teachers. I also received so much support. But, I must be honest it was a rush.
I got followers. People actually cared about what I thought. I now understand why my students crave followers on apps like twitter or Instagram. It is an electronic high.
This experience will make me a better teacher. Any time I can better understand the teenagers in my classroom, I become better able to communicate with them.
I now love hash tags. I am hooked.
