I finally got this tweet embedded, the directions given on How to Embed A Tweet.. were a little off for me. I persevered and here we are gazing upon Professor Snape and my, isn’t it wonderful! Professor Snape is that teacher that somewhere in our education we all have eventually, they instill a bit of fear, they are a infinitely intelligent, and their voice echos in a students mind for years. Okay, maybe we don’t all encounter a teacher like that. Almost six months pregnant and blogging, eating apple pie and studying for an anatomy exam I could relate to this tweet. I am a go get-er, a doer, and I believe that is how I will embark on my teaching career, but I bet I will feel the repercussions every now and again, because teaching is hard work.
I have began to cultivate my Professional/ Personal Learning Network and it is really inspiring. I have already felt that I have benefited from the educators I have began following on twitter and in their personal blogs. I have also noticed that there are people that are not benefiting me or fitting the network I am aiming to build and I have chosen not to continue following these few. I have noticed that a few people have already began to follow me back, and now I feel more than ever my duty or the actual pressure of my own goal I should say is to give quality information and knowledge that I come across back to others. I like this pressure, I thrive in creating my own goals and feeling like I have to live up to what I have taken on. I have taken on creating a network that will benefit me as a student, a teacher, and a leader. The challenges I believe I will face in feeding the network I am trying to build will include being side tracked with some particular aspects of education, and not keep the range wide enough to see and learn about all I want to. I feel I don’t yet have the experience or confidence to be able to share advice type posts, yet I can and will share my ideas and goals; I hope that I will gain more insight through this project.
