I keep writing about the people at ECET2BYU in the hopes that you will reach out to them and get to know them. I talk to teachers across the country ALL of the time. A chief complaint is a feeling isolation. Teachers tell me that they feel they have no critical friends to bounce new ideas off of and to help them refine their practice. If that describes you look no further. The three interviews I have here are all former teachers who now train teachers. Each has more than a decade of experience and each is excited about teacher development. Look them up and reach out! Remember to lead is to constantly learn, and while others may not tell you the truth I always will, social media is for more than entertainment it is also educational. – Dr. Kia
