#edfocus, Special Edition Tonight!
Part 1: Pre-Chat
It’s a stressful time for educators. The usual rigor of our work, coupled with the pressure of the holidays always leaves us feeling drained at the end of the day. Add last Friday’s tragedy to the mix and anyone working in a school is ready for a break.
Tonight, my friend Derek McCoy and I are hosting a special edition of our #edfocus Twitter chat. It will be unique, it’s not about a book, reform or idea. Instead, it’s a chat dedicated to talking about why we do what we do, what we love about our work, and some highlights of our years in the profession.
I hope you can join us tonight at 8:30 EST to celebrate our profession. As is always our policy, all are welcome. Spend an hour with us.
Part 2: Post-Chat
I found myself very charged up after the chat. There were so many common themes and experiences that made me remember many of the small “highlights” that are part of my everyday work.
I decided to use Storify to capture a transcript of the event. Take a look, reflect on the questions and comments, and see if you don’t end up motivated.
