I've been here since around 2003 or so. It was before my son was born in summer 2004. I think I found PT in spring 2003.

I've been on since 2001 yet have never signed up. I like to keep my privacy and don't even have a Facebook account for the same reason.

I had recently found the chat room on "the other site" when Columbine happened and that was April of 1999. Some time after that I discovered PT after searching some educational term or another, and found I liked it better. Everybody signed on as a guest when I first started coming here, but I have always signed in here as "Jade". I know I was coming here in 2005 when my dad died, but I was pretty sporadic, dragging my heels a bit regarding registering, until I finally got official in 2006.

I found this site years ago, back when I was in undergrad. (I graduated in 2003, so probably around 2002.) Anyway, I remember when everyone just had nicknames and weren't registered. This is my second official name here.

I have been here since 1999....I have had three different usernames. I remember being on PT when Columbine was happening on TV. I started here on PT when I was a 5th grade teacher. I also remember Cathy Dee, Coach, REB, GraceKrispy, and more... I love PT!

around 2003 or 2004 I think. I have had several sign in names... love the site. I have large gaps of time where I never log on, and then long stretches where I am regular.

Good question! Now I'm curious! I probably lurked for about a year or so before joining up. I used to use proteacher.com all the time for looking for ideas before I realized that at proteacher.net everything was there in the forum format, or maybe they changed it over...

Now I have to post something to see when I joined!

2005, that surprises me. I would have guessed around 03. I think I lurked for quite a while before that.

Interesting that all the people who've been here the longest seem to be listed as Aug/Sept/Oct 2005. I'm thinking Angie might be right about some sort of login change at that point.

I joined in 1999. At that time there were 2 Dawns, and I also remember Cathy-Dee & Coach as active members from that time.

I would say the early 2000s for me. It was before we had log-ins. I also remember Coach and Cathy-dee. I thinkm2005 was the year the site had a makeover.
