This week, as a lead up to Valentine's Day, my Voxer PLN and I are tweeting out #iTeachBecause notes each day.
It all started with a conversation about how ECET2 conferences have teachers share #whyIteach and those tweet out during the conference with your picture. We didn't want to use that hashtag because it is known to ECET2 and we wanted to be more original. As a joke, I suggested #iTeachBecause since it was the closest and it is the one that stuck because its meaning is quite obvious.
We are tweeting out each day leading up to Valentine's Day in an effort to spread the LOVE and JOY of our profession instead of the negativity that so often plagues social media when it comes to teaching.
You can follow me @RayeWood and join in on the #iTeachBecause movement!
Also one week from today, EdSurge is having a Shark Tank about products for ELL populations. Yours truly is one of the sharks! I'm super excited and we'd love for you to join us! You can register here http://sharktankregistration.weebly.com/
