As you can see I spread my interests around. I’m not afraid to say I don’t know. I like asking questions. I’ve been using social networking for about 18months now. I started by trying to find stuff using search and then moved into the social networking, subscribing to information and people and found that it was a great way to learn because you had all these random experiences and people to ask questions of.

Being connected to people in a professional sense means that I’m able to be a better teacher in many different ways. I understand a wider variety of interests, and even if I don’t understand them I can reach out to my network with questions I could find someone in my network to help me understand bullying, graffiti, brass bands, running, social causes - almost anything I learn more of the things I’m interested in - but I also learn enough about the stuff I don’t know much about to be able to at least say ‘I’ll find out for you’
