Why do you choose to be a connected educator?
As an art teacher, I believe it’s important to showcase my students art so not only they can review it, but also share it with their families. As a leadership teacher, I’m constantly getting new ideas from all over the internet. I also do that with art as well. Being connected to other teachers who teach the same subjects is very important to me. I learn more from my peers than just about any place else.
