Clip to ScrapBook #9

It used to be that there were those who constantly talked about themselves and how WONDERFUL they were. Now, those same people have Twitter, Instagram, Facebook...

Early on in the teacher Twitter craze, I did participate in some pretty good Twitter chats on educational topics. Those are few and far between these days.

The effect of social media hurts teachers who don't always self-congratulate, and it is an emotional piece that I think informs us as to why so many children have anxiety. The constant exhortation to "be awesome," "be amazing," "be inspiring"... cannot be good for any human being.
