Vicki Davis says:
Sometimes people ask me why I write and teach. Part of me has to write – I feel made to do it and to not write would be like asking me not to breathe or be me. But I also know that all the research I have to pour into my writing projects make me a better teacher.
If you jump in a bowl of clam chowder – you start fitting in — likewise if I jump in a bowl of excellent teaching practices each time I work – I feel like my own practices level up and become scented with the aromatic greatness of incredible teachers around the world.
Just another reminder of how important it is for educators to be connected to others online…
Yes, it is VERY important for educators to be connected online! There are some great websites out there with terrific information that can help teachers be the best teachers they can be. Vicki’s is one excellent source, as is this one (Dangerously Irrelevant). Please check out others! See what you can learn! Write in the comments and share what you know with other readers! 🙂
