tomwalshAs a principal I cannot communicate enough with students, teachers, parents, and community members. I find that there so many stories I want to share and issues that I want to engage our community in addressing. For me, social media has been the most effective way to connect with my school and community.

Being a Connected Educator is not optional for a principal in this day and age. Social media is transforming the school and community relationship. Social Media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram allow school personnel an immediate vehicle for sharing information, receiving feedback, promoting events, and highlighting teaching and learning activities.
