Hello, teaching is my passion, not my job. I keep the computers running for my city government. But I really enjoy designing, building, and flying model airplanes and water rockets. I just created a new science website; science videos and resources. http://www.scienceguy.org. Bill Kuhl

Just joined up today. I'm a 6th grade Math & Science teacher in Indianapolis, Indiana. I spent the last 7 years out of the classroom helping our district implement new technologies into the classrooms. Oh how things have changed in 7 years. I feel like a first year teacher all over again.

Exploring being part of blog community as instructed by my Master's class. Edutopia has so much to offer I knew this would be a great place to start. I am interested in blogs related to social studies too.

I have been very slow to take to social media, networking, and technology. I am signing up for a variety of sites/blogs and have no idea which will be interesting and useful to me. Edutopia looks promising.

If you need any help navigating the social media waters, feel free to reach out to me (you can message me through this community or respond in this thread).

I would definitely recommend joining Twitter if you haven't already. I've met so many great educators that swear that Twitter changed their lives.

Here's a useful article we've written on Twitter:

How to Use Twitter to grow your PLN: http://www.edutopia.org/blog/twitter-expanding-pln

And here's a LiveBinder of Twitter resources you may find helpful:

I have been on twitter as an observer for about a week and plan to start tweeting to some edchats soon Livebinders are another new thing to me. Good thing we just bought a new laptop. The family has been getting frustrated with me hogging our desktop all the time.
