#ECET2BYU has some educators you ALL need to meet!

Connected

I write ALL OF THE TIME about the importance of teachers networking with one another and connecting to share ideas. Fortunately, ECET2BYU has the same idea and attracted some GREAT educators from across the state of Louisiana. My goal with this platform is to give you access to educators you might not otherwise have met. If you like them FOLLOW them on social media! They would love to connect with you. I have three educators I sat down with at the conference below and each of them brings something unique to the conversation. Remember to lead is to constantly learn, and while others may not tell you the truth, I always will, no one can make it in this field alone. Here is me hoping that one of these interviews sparks something and causes you to reach out and build your own professional network!

He is working on his dissertation AND was just admitted to a very selective one year training program with Paul Bambrick-Santoyo.
