Day 22; What does your PLN look like? What does it do for your teaching?
So we don’t use the acronym PLN where I work, so I had to look it up (Professional Learning Network). My professional learning network consists of a variety of essential parts. Probably my most important piece to my PLN is my teaching partner. We are in constant communication when it comes to what we are teaching on a daily basis and obviously where we are headed in terms of long range plans. We are on the same page and have many similarities when it comes to the way we approach our teaching and the expectations that we have for our students. I feel very lucky to have someone just down the hallway who is always there to support, listen and inspire me.Like many other teachers, my PLN has recently included Twitter, Pinterest and many teaching blogs that I have come across and get inspired by. I love how the use of social media has had an impact in my teaching. It is both inspiring and validating; two things I think as teachers we need to experience. I am so happy to have come across so many interesting and useful blogs, and pinterest ideas as well as twitter links that make me think about my teaching and ways that I want to improve it.
