Now It's Time to Reflect and Share!

Q1: Welcome, McIntire Staff! Please introduce yourself and tell us what you teach. BONUS: Favorite holiday movie! #McTeach

I go to NEW TWEET button, then type:

A1: #McTeach Hi All! I'm Beth and I am the principal at @McElem. My FAV holiday movie is ELF #smilingismyfavorite

Your role is to reflect and answer the question, but also to see the ideas of others and correspond or "retweet" ideas you especially agree with or like.

Our STAFF CHALLENGE until our next PD is to take part in one Twitter Chat. See the blog post for popular chats. An EASY way to meet this challenge is to join us tonight from the comfort of your PJ's as we share the amazing things happening in our school.

Remember, your participation in a real chat can be as involved as chiming in for each question, like we did today, or just lurking and reading responses. The choice is yours!
