Connected Educator Profile (Day 10) – Kimberly Payton – Louisburg, Kansas

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?

I am connected primarily for the best PLN – I’ve connected with other educators, increased my understanding and practice in areas (e.g., standards based grading)

Where can other educators connect with you online?
