Last night I moderated a Twitter chat. It wasn’t heavily attended, but the conversation flowed. I thought back to an urgent phone call from a frazzled colleague.
“I have to host a Twitter chat! I don’t even know what that means!”
We plotted, we dreamed, we schemed… and she hosted. #wyasdpride was born. Three tech coaches and a teacher/grad student made it happen.
Now, it happens once a month w a steady, growing group and new moderators volunteering each month. We have started a movement. I’m proud of the teachers in my district who are willing to give an hour a month and share their thoughts and feelings about education online.
It’s powerful. Parents watch. School board members watch. Administrators watch. But most importantly, our students and other educators watch.
I ❤️ to lurk and learn what my WYAS teachers are up too! Maybe one of these days, parents can chime in too! 😃👍🏻📝📚#ISupportWYASDTeachers#ProudToBeABulldogParent

It’s a testimony to our dedication. See preview here.
I am #wyasdpride proud! Join us April 30th at 7:15pm for our next monthly chat. If you just want to lurk and learn that’s okay as well!
