The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Creativeness, strength, purpose and meaningfulness exude from the learners sitting in my room, fill the entire space, inspire and motivate me, the mentor, and therefore, dictate my interaction with my scholars.

Many of my colleagues and I strongly believe that it is a privilege and an honor to face day after day our future, the best of the best, tomorrow’s political and social leaders.

Thank to Facebook and Twitter, I know for a fact and I have witnessed countless times that our mission as educators has borne fruits. I enjoy seeing many of my former learners heading the fields of education, medicine, engineering, finance and economics, journalism, arts, sports, etc.

I am extremely proud of my present and former students and my calling.

You might even have laughed out loud. When did that last happened to you?It’s only wordsHow can written words evoke feelings…See More
