About a month ago, I wrote a post called “School-Family Partnership” in which I invited parents to take a survey to help me organize workshops that would help parents get set up using Twitter.
Many parents completed the survey within a few days of my email. I thought I would give ample time for others to take the survey and then I planned on scheduling the workshops to take place in January.
What I didn’t plan for was how busy I would be in January! As a first-year Assistant Principal, I’m learning a lot about prioritizing and time management!
So My first order of business is to apologize to the parents who responded to my first email and to let you know that I have not forgotten about you!
January has been a crazy month, so I have not been able to organize and offer the workshops as I had planned. I’m going to do my best to plan at least one workshop in February, once the new term begins and things quiet down a bit. Right now, I have no dates in mind.
A few of the respondents to the survey asked for a Twitter Beginner’s Guide to help get started. I have chosen this beginner’s guide for its depth & breadth of information coupled with its ease to use. I think parents will find it useful and even though it is geared towards educators, it is still relevant to parents, especially those looking to connect with their school and their kids’ teachers.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me or tweet me directly. I will be in touch soon once I organize the workshop.
Good luck and see you on Twitter.
