A chance meeting at ACTFL sparked a collaboration between a World Language teacher in Texas and a Teacher Educator in North Carolina: online help through Twitter and blogging! A partnership developed where Karen's pre-service teachers emailed a list of burning questions about the teaching profession; responses were posted on Amy's blog. Other WL teachers were invited to share their responses via Twitter and the response was fabulous!
Now we are inspired to get other WL teachers to connect with their local universities and share their wealth of knowledge with pre-service teachers. Instead of waiting for opportunities to present themselves, we want to reach out to pre-service teachers around the country and the #Teach2Teach initiative is only the beginning!
