For almost 4 years I was the facilitator of our New Teacher Community here at and really enjoyed that work. As the site evolved, that work ended, but it's great to see that we have a place to connect new and pre-service T's and those that care about them.

Over that time period I have been able to join the blogging team at Edutopia and look forward to producing new posts soon! I also founded a New Teacher Chat on Twitter which occurs every Wednesday at 5PT/8ET as a way to support those new to the professsion. Today is our 5th Year Birthday for the chat and I want to invite you all to attend! 

I'm also hosting a giveaway on as a way to give back to those that join me and I'd love you to enter. (You can read about it here too---see below.)
