Dear Alton Darby Families:
This month I wanted to share with you a little about me as a learner. I have been on this incredible journey of reflection and learning since getting involved with social media in 2010 when I joined Twitter. When I first started using Twitter, I didn’t get it. Who really cares what anyone ate for dinner last night? But as I became connected to more and more educators, business leaders and others who were interested in education, I began to see the value of this platform. I had access to so many new ideas about what we can do for kids as educators, and having that kind of access to ideas has helped me grow as an educator. I continue to interact with others on Twitter, and do what I can to contribute to the conversation. Being connected to so many people across the world continues to be an amazing experience and continues to help me grow as a learner and as a leader.
I also believe that we can use these platforms to share our stories of learning each and every day at Alton Darby Elementary. We want our parents, our community members, and the world to know about the great things that are taking place each day. So if you’ve been reluctant to join in the conversation on social media, let me suggest that you give it a try! Connect with the school at twitter.com/AltonDarby and connect with me at twitter.com/HHigginbotham. Check out what we are learning about each day! All the best to you and your family!
