Last February I started blogging weekly and in September a second weekly segment, That Thing You Do! was added. It’s a post by invitation where authors and educators share a strategy that teachers can put into practice in their professional lives. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to those who contributed this year. Thank you my beloved colleagues!
I have met so many amazing educators through social media and learned volumes this year as a result of blogging. I’m looking forward to 2017. Before saying goodbye to this year I want to bring back the top ten posts from 2016. Thank you for reading and being such a vital part of my professional learning network.
