It appears that it wasn't just me who was experiencing difficulties connecting to PT today. As several of you said,
Quote:
Hope this isn't the beginning of the end, but if it is I've enjoyed your company thru the years.
I suspect that the people who started PT have moved on to bigger and better things and left the PT site to die a slow death. The banner at the top explaining about technical problem with PT's email system is an indication that there may not be anyone at the helm anymore. It's been up for months, and queries have gone nowhere.

This may be premature, but I want to thank all of you who have made this site a wonderful place to share ideas as well as bits of your lives. I have learned a lot about education and many other things. Wishing you all the best, but meanwhile I will stay on PT until the bitter end.

I hope it keeps going. I have treasured the time spent here. You have uplifted me, entertained me and given me food for thought. I will miss all the book recommendations among other things. Most of all I will miss you my friends. You have a large chunk of my heart.

In the words of Andrew Gold and "The Golden Girls" "Thank You for Being a Friend".

PS - What other sites will fill my time?

DON"T MAKE ME CRY.
(Sorry for yelling.)
I, too, will be on PT as long as possible and I hope that that is a good long time, with many BTS exchanges and Secret Santas. I have appreciated the support (especially several years ago when I went through the worst year of my teaching life) and through the ups and downs in between.
I'm going to really miss this site if it stops.

Yes, you all echo my thoughts. I think of PTers as friends who comfort and advise. This is where I come to learn and to laugh, to commiserate and be grateful…and occasionally share an accomplishment. You all are an important part of my day.

I hope we find a way to continue. You know I’m not techy, but could we start a FB PT group? Just in case?

I feel like each person needs to be connected to someone that is on FB or some other social media (or email) in case there is a crash with this site (obviously, only if you want to be!). Those of us that are connected to others via FB could easily corral everyone for a FB PT group if need be . I have often thought about waking up one day and PT just being gone.

Anyone is welcome to friend me! Just send me a pm and I can give you my info.

One advantage ProTeacher has over Facebook is that we can post anonymously.

I despise Facebook, especially after what is coming out about their greed over the mental health of kids and teens. I’ve never had an account because I’ve never liked their invasive and sneaky tracking.

Is there another teacher board we could migrate to?

I’m still getting ads on this site.

Sorry about the small font. I’m using an old phone.

I understand why FB will work for some. I will never do FB. If this site ends, I will miss the friends Iíve made here.

I welcome all to our PT KindredKonnections group. If you are not sure how to use Reddit there are many YouTube tutorials. Here is an easy one :https://youtu.be/hwginx9hp1k


I hope to see you join us. AnnieG,wordgirl and myself are the moderators there.



Reddit is a wonderful site full of any information you might need. I am sad about PT as I have been chatting here for a very long time and consider many chatters here my virtual friends.

Do you think it will no longer work? Stinks if there is no moderator. That could be bad. Wish someone else could be it.

I have greatly enjoyed PT over the years, and the many posters who have become like friends to me.

First I posted mostly about teaching, then I mostly posted to the Vent, then mostly to the Lounge, and recently I mostly post to another board here. But I have always appreciated the different views and perspectives, as well as the commonality of all of us being teachers.

I will continue to post and read here, but if anyone is interested in connecting with me on FB, please PM me and I'll share my info.

Also, as Anna said, there is a group on reddit too.

Iím hoping itís just technical difficulties. Every morning I have my coffee and browse PT. It was a life support system when I was teaching, and I feel I can still offer sound assistance even though Iím retired.

I feel so many of you are good friends, and a couple have become real life, almost face to face friends.

AdminÖplease donít let it die without giving us a warning to say one last goodbye. Preferably, pass it on to someone else.

I'll stick with proteacher until the end, but joined the Reddit group just now. I'm Retired Tea28. Might join a Facebook group, too. Not sure if one has been established for migrating ProTeacher folks.
