This editorial demanded my attention for a multitude of reasons:
- I teacher preservice teachers: elementary education majors, as well as inservice teachers: graduate students.
- I'm a parent and aunt of children in the Mobile County Public School System.
- I am an avid Tweeter @pvbaggett and proclaim quite often that it is my #1 professional development resource with the disclaimer that it is all in who you follow.
- This semester I am requiring my students to explore Twitter by registering and at least following me (and others I designated as tweet-worthy). I want our future teachers to walk a mile (or at least a few steps) in the shoes before they judge...which is a practice I personally try to uphold.
