I'm starting something new. Actually, I'm starting something new based on something familiar. Makes the risk feel a bit safer, yes? In the last year, I've been working hard to grow my professional learning network (PLN). In particular, thanks to the PLNs for Educators Course and inspiration from #ETCoaches initiatives, I've been working to curate my PLN so that it is more focused, effective, and goal-oriented. In an effort to put myself out there more, to move away from just reading and following and to move towards increased engagement and interaction, I've decided to start blogging my reflections in a weekly six-word memoir. The six-word format balances my goal to be thoughtful, yet concise, and easily accessible for those who (hopefully!) read it. Just 6 words to help me reflect on my professional work and learning and to (again hopefully!) start conversations with others. So here we go... My first week of #6wordsaweek lays out my PLN path for the year.
I'm an elementary school teacher turned professional learning/edtech coach, avid reader, and lifelong learner. For 2018, I've set the goal to create a 6 word memoir for each week to find my voice, reflect on my own professional learning, and set goals for how my learning will impact my practice.
