Connected Educator Profile (Day 5) – Tom Murray – Bucks County, PA

The United State Department of Education has declared the month of October Connected Educator Month. According to,  the website set up to support this event, the Mission of Connected Educator Month is to  promote educators learning and collaborating through online communities of practice and social networks.With this in mind I reached out to my Personal Learning Network (PLN) via Twitter, my favorite resource for connecting, and tweeted the following:
As is normally the case, my network came through! When I have a question on an educational topic or want some feedback for one of my crazy ideas, I have a network of amazing educators at my fingertips that never cease to amaze me. Being a “Connected Educator” is awesome!

Why do you choose to be a connected educator?

Simply put, being a connected educator allows me to learn from a global network, from people of all walks, position titles, etc., who challenge my thinking, encourage my initiatives, and force me to be better tomorrow than I was today. My PLN has inspired my work and pushed me to be the very best that I can be….for kids.
