Hello #etmooc ers. It has been almost three years since we began our journey together and I cannot express my gratitude effectively for the help you have provided me over the past three years.
Suffice it to say for now I am a better educator and person because of all the help and support you have given to me.
The real reason for this post is to mobilize you to connect, reconnect and share others great work to the hashtag #etmooc in anticipation of our three year anniversary of this amazing PLN and network of people.

So here is my challenge to all of you.
- Find five people that were in #etmooc
- Share some of their wisdom over the next two months, some great post they wrote or something they have posted to twitter that you like
- Share their posts to the #etmooc hashtag.
Here is an example:
There is some astounding , inspiring work that #etmooc ‘ers have done and some of it can be traced back to what they learned in #etmooc.
So go ahead and start celebrating others and you might even add a comment or two ( smile inserted here ).
We look forward to connecting with you as we prepare for our third year anniversary. See you soon.
Thanks for being you and doing what you do to help others.
Of course if you need to add a smile to your face watch …
There is no such thing as a new idea. It is impossible. We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope. We give them a turn and they make new and curious combinations. We keep on turning and making new combinations indefinitely; but they are the same old pieces of colored glass that have been in use through all the ages.

I am so fortunate to work with @NeilOF12 a great leader, and @ehordyskiluong ( my co-inspirer) I know that’s not a word, but she always works with me to inspire students and helps me with so many other projects and ideas. To Peter Damen who always has great ideas and is a fabulous School Counsellor ( who I am grateful is on our team ) thank you for who you are and all you do. To my fabulous colleagues who continue to inspire me by what they do and their comittment to education . I am grateful to work alongside you.
In 2015, I hope to see more Canadian School Counsellors on twitter. I look forward to celebrating and connecting with you. Thanks to those who have already taken a leadership role. See you in #SCCrowd #scchat and #cscchat.
