Truthfully, I wasn't going to complete this one. I have this really weird relationship with Twitter. I love it for the amazing PD I've gotten from it, yet I feel guilty becuase somtimes I feel like I don't really have anything to contribute. Well, I guess I didn't until recently.
So let me back up, I am going to admit I didn't follow the formula for the number of activities Justin suggested. Here is what I actually did:
I did introduce myself using #MTBoS
Then I found my Twitter history and my first tweet which was on 8/17/11
2011-08-17 14:14:03 +0000 web The countdown is on! Back to school in 11 days...
Pretty cool! This was before I had my permanent job and I was going back to the district I student taught at as a long term sub. They offered me a para position right at the same time I got offered my current job in November of that year. What a strange time that was, I was so unsure about working in a charter school in a really "rough" town that I almost turned it down for a para job! Now I love my school and my kids and the town I work in that I can't even think of leaving (although $$ wise I really should start looking, as charter schools pay crappy compared to regular public schools.)
Then I tweeted to people I follow and this was where it got uncomfortable! So, I said "Hi" to Justin since it was his mission :), Heather @Scott22Heather, because she was a mom and taught 8th grade like me and then finally, Robert @RobertKaplinsky since I just found his website http://robertkaplinsky.com/ and really love the problems on it!
According to the formula I was supposed to do 4, and I only did three unless I stop now and go do another one! Eh what the heck, why not...
LOL that one was easy peasy! I opened the #MTBoS feed and retweeted something I found compelling:
There is way more to integers than I ever thought of before. Thanks to #MTBoS for getting my brain in complete overload!
