Three years ago tomorrow, a group of Florida educators that had never met in person, breathed live into an old hashtag in order to connect educators across the state of Florida. I, for one, can say that it seems like #FLedChat has always been a part of my life. Almost every Wednesday night for the past three years, I could be found on Twitter. It is my passion to help others realize the value in connecting and building a network of educators that support your classroom.
The ripples that have emerged from the idea that teachers want to connect has become a valuable time for many across our state. I have met so many amazing people helping our students become active learners. I can’t imagine a better way to spend my free time. If you have time, check out the hashtag #FLedChat, favorite a tweet or two and let your own wave start forming.
