#Langchat I follow #langchat because teachers share great ideas and resources.

I often find ideas I hadn’t considered or something of value.

So many great conversations, even when in small concentrated amounts can be very powerful. Any social media is NOT about having the MOST followers, but having the RIGHT followers. Quality over quantity.

Deb Heaton, Latin teacher, Woburn High School @ACLClassics
Sarah Mogathader, French Teacher, Brookline Middle School @1jour1actu I follow this because it provides me with videos of why different practices exist in France
Jeanne O’Hearn, Spanish/ESL teacher, Masconomet Middle School @karacjacobs Tough to choose but I would recommend @karacjacobs because Kara's posts have made me aware of numerous amazing resources. Thanks, Kara!
Kim Talbot, Director of Global Education, Melrose High School #mafla18 I  love interacting with learners who are at MaFLA PD events  - I learn so much whether I am in the room or not!
