Hello, my name is Ibby Rios; I am a middle school Spanish and social studies teacher in Crofton, MD. I've been teaching for about 12 years and in the last couple of years have been more intentional about tech integration in my classroom. I have found this professional learning community very useful and helpful - from the webinars, to the resources shared and discussion presented in the forums.
I have created a group in the community called Passport to the World for social studies. If this is your content area, check it out; it should be a meaningful forum for sharing ideas and resources.
I'm Ryan Journey from Philadelphia, PA. I currently teach special education, but want to open myself up to the many different teaching experiences that are out there.
Hi Ryan, your city will be invaded by 10,000 or so of us TESOL members. We will have our convention there next week. What is the weather like?
Good morning to some, and good afternoon to the rest,

Hello, My name is Juliet Knight and I am currently a SLPA student in the Los Angeles area. Thanks for letting me look around. This is pretty amazing! Social Media is a very real resource for today's teacher. I enjoyed reading how teachers are considering blogging as a means of keeping their kids writing during the holiday breaks. Great idea! I would have loved this as a kid.
I'm Roxanne Clement and I'm a Teacher Librarian at an elementary K-5 (next year K-6) public school in Alameda California.

I am Rade. I come from Bosnia and Herzegovina. I am a teacher of English language and literature (Bachelor's degree). I have been teaching English for five years and I still feel so fresh about teaching, so I want to learn more and to gain more knowledge. I also completed the course "Building Teaching Skill Through the Interactive Web" at the University of Oregon, as a scholarship holder of the American Embassy in the programme of distant learning. I also do the translations from my mother tongue (Serbian language) to English and vice verse. I am very enthusiastic about expending my knowledge and learning from the professionals.
I am glad to be part of this and in the same time a little bit confused about this as this is the first time for me to participate in something like this.
