Tell about your involvement in education, and your ideals for collegial sharing
I have been in education for 23 years: 20 as a classroom teacher and three as a technology resource teacher. I've had great opportunities to lead seminars and teach in China: this has shown me that teachers are the same the world over!
49, feel and act like I'm 25; married with two daughters (met my wife in second grade); born to teach!
I've added a link to your "Brian's TRT" blog to Fireside Learning's "can't miss links" box in the lower right panel.
You sound like a fellow who after years of experience, still loves his work and his wife! Glad to hear it--on both accounts.
Please start and join in discussions which matter to you about kids learning.
Thanks for joining us.
