Social Networking

  • Using social media can be a great way to expand your professional network.  I have listed the social media networks to which I belong below.  Check out each one to see which networks are a best fit for your teaching role and sign up to try them out.  Some of these social networks can be used for personal networking as well.  For those services, it may be best to sign up for separate professional and personal accounts.  Always use your professional email address for professional accounts and your personal email address for personal accounts. The links below will take you to the main page for each of the social networking sites so you can login and create your own profile.  You can view my social media profiles and connect with me online by clicking the links in the Follow Me! sidebar to the right.  See you online!
