With the new school year upon us, I'm forced to finally decide, to tweet or not to tweet? That is this teacher's question. I've been putting off the decision for a few school years now citing all kinds of excuses. But now, I must pick a side. Am I a teacher who tweets or not? I'm going to lay out my pros and cons, but I would really like to hear from you! Do you tweet to your students? How has it gone? Are there positive or negative factors that I'm overlooking? Are you considering making the move to the twitterverse? Help me!
When I began blogging back in 2011, I entered the world bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, expecting to be behind in the game for awhile, and anticipating finding some great middle and high school bloggers out there who would be willing to collaborate and share ideas. I fully expected to gain hundreds of eager middle and high school English teacher followers in a few months, clamoring to read my articles and share ideas. How wrong I was.
