Third from the bottom you can find a link to this very blog, (not very) full of education-related blog posts and a professional-style photo of me wearing a suit. Classy stuff, that.
I suppose that my online reputation is pretty good. In fact, my online reputation is about a hundred times better than my real-life reputation!
A note to my future PLN:
“Don’t listen to my RL haters. They’re just jealous of my fantastic online rep. For realz.”
I like my online reputation. I feel that it represents the kind of professional I want to be. As someone who has managed to avoid leaving online footprints for the past 25 years, getting on social media and building a fresh, online persona is a nice way to represent how I’ve been reinvigorating my practice and reigniting my passion for teaching over the past couple of years.
Professional-style tweets and blog posts shall continue unabated.
