As I was looking through educators on Twitter, I came across a woman by the name of Daisy Dyer Duer, her Twitter handle is @DaisyDyerDuerr. Her profile read that she was a Principal of a school district (K-12) in Arkansas. She even had a hash tag, #ArkEdChat, which I thought was neat since we have our own hash tag to communicate with each other in our Writing Arts classroom (#tfws13). At the end of her profile she has a website listed, http://daisydyerduerr.com.
Right away I could tell that Dasiy was deeply involved in her profession and I wanted to learn more.
I clicked on her website and found out from there that she writes her own blogs on her page and that she travels around the country as a speaker. She obviously makes teaching more than just a job, it’s her passion and she’s made it into something that she enjoys. Her quote on her page says “Prepare ALL Students for Success in Today’s Digital World”. That is literally what we talk about in my education and writing classes at Rowan University each day. It’s nice to read it somewhere else and know that it’s our future and it really exists.
Next, I clicked back over to her Twitter and checked out her follower list. Everyone that followed her was an educator or belonged in the field somehow. The same went for people who she followed. They were all involved in education; whether they were administrators, teachers, aides, or curriculum specialists. I am so glad I stumbled upon her account, and followed more people from her Twitter that inspire me to be a part of the amazing world of educators!
