The Facebook Group That Tweets Out On Friday's #K12Live

“Faith is the courage to face reality with hope.” Dr. Robert H. Schuller

Tweet Out Friday #K12Live

The Launch of K12 Live on Facebook

K12 Live is a web community based movement that spotlights some of the brightest teacher’s you know, discovered, or read about the outstanding methods and systems they use to produce win-win results for the students they serve.

Here’s how it works:

► Join the group and let us know why you do what you do? Why did you choose to work in education? Why did you choose your specialized area? Why did you choose your students or did you? You get the idea.

► Then each Thursday or Friday come back and post a spotlight of outstanding K – 12 school employees or parents you work with, it could be someone you recently discovered or never forgot about how they impacted your life as a teacher.

► You can link us to a video (highly recommended) of your spotlight recognition. You can point us to a blog or podcast that tells a success story that might inspire others in education to grow beyond the day-to-day challenges that destroys careers and smashes a student’s passion to dream.

► Then give them a Tweet Out. Let the entire micro blogosphere know in 140 character spaces that person is a shinning planet in your universe. Encourage others to follow them if they’re on using the hash tag #K12Live so everyone can read about them at under search tag.

Ex. @kchichester rocks the chalkboard inspiring her students to dream big American dreams and never loose hope! #K12Live

Ex. @lnicewaner is blogging about the creative solutions of technology in the classroom, she gets it #K12Live

Ex. @deployedteacher wants you to check out @dogtagsforkids for sending kids dogtags from their parents overseas. Great pride at school #K12Live

► Finally pass this link around to your family and friends so that they can join in on the fun of being celebrated for the hard work they love to do. And courage them to connect with others from this group. Support may be one of the most valuable keys to managing life’s challenges. Post it and watch it go down at under search tag.
