I am not alone anymore … I am part of a group ofgreat and generous educators, I find support andhave a voice in my PLNs (Personal LearningNetworks)
Maybe we cannot change the world by our actionsalone but we can change ourselves and the worldaround us may change. Inspired by “Be the changeyou want to see in the world” – GandhiInstead of starting from scratch, I try to build onthe work of others, adapting the material to mystudents needs and my beliefs.“The world’s knowledge is a public good”, wedeserve equal access as human beings. So, my waystarted reading and reflecting on other’s work, andmy goal is to get intellectual emancipation.

So I posted on our EDMODO platform my doubt, and Anmariafrom her mobile phone posted one minute later, “Debbie I can see your juicy plums” Theywere all just incredible. Chapo teachers!As for me, EVO changed the way I look at teaching and sharing, so much so, that we createda Facebook group “EVOToolers” where we post questions and help each other.

REAFLECTING ON OUR JOURNEY AS TEACHERSI started reflecting upon my students work and my own work. Why?Because of sharing!I was reading Dalecoulter’s blog(http://languagemoments.wordpress.com/2012/02/19/reflection-at-the-chalkface/#respond), and I posted a little comment, heasked me a question, and though I had been more a lurker than anactive participant in blogging, I felt I had to take the risk andstarted sharing my reflections.http://datenglish-portfolio.blogspot.com.ar/2012/02/reflecting-time.html Visit my blog and why not drop a line, I’ve learned thatfeedback empowers us as teachers and human beings.
The journey has just started …I’d like to thank many teachers, whose hands Ihave never shaken but I feel so close to them.Thanks mentors and educators for the webinars!Thanks Twitter friends!Thanks Facebook contacts and followers!Thanks dear students, without you this would havenot being possible.And see you all soon on the road …Debbie @datenglish
