If I don’t do this blog post now, it’ll never get done.
I joined Twitter last year so that I could follow other math teachers. Primarily, I lurk and read posts and conversations (overpowered by shyness), but occasionally, I’ll respond to something. My first tweet was almost exactly a year ago:
For the MTBoS mission, I’ve followed a few new people, tagged a couple of things with #MTBoS, and shouted out to Robert Kaplinsky for inspiring me to write a task like his What Rides task. Originally, I was just going to borrow his images from the Knotts Berry Farm, but since I’m in Virginia, I decided to go with a Busch Gardens theme, since most of my students have actually been there.
I haven’t gotten the gumption yet to really introduce myself via the blog or Twitter (which of course, per the mission, should be something I try). I’m more of a passive, gently-insert-comment-into-conversation type. Maybe soon?
Hopefully I’ll contribute more to Twitter this week. Last week flew by so quickly!
