Since I joined the virtual community of educators around the globe, my life as a teacher, no matter how experienced I was back then, has changed tremendously. I have blogged about my experience as an exchange educator which, I think, was my first big step into a surprising, exciting and unlimited world of opportunities.
Later on, one of my closest friends convinced me to browse different websites for teachers, so I started to connect online, I took one virtual course and one day, by navigating this huge online universe, I discovered the wonderful Shelly Sanchez Terrell, for whom I do not have words to describe.
After Shelly´s invitation to join the 30 Goals Challenge for Educators, my dear friend and colleague Sylvia Guinannominated me to be the next teacher to be interviewed, Shelly´s comments and all the feedback I got after my talk with her, took me to another "galaxy". That kind of connection was exactly what I needed at that time: moments of feeling depressed, empty and unfulfilled after coming back to live and teach in my home country, as hard as it may sound: the real truth.
Becoming a better educator, a BETTER CONNECTED EDUCATOR, a real 21st Century Educator are my movements.
