The online mentorship at www.tappedin.org my fellow clasmates and I have been a part of this semester has been an awesome learning experience. There are so many skilled, passionate educators who are so willing to share their advice, ideas, opinions, and encouragement with us as we journey towards our teaching profession. If we had any questions, all we had to do was post them and immediately there were several replies from individauls who had already been where we are today and could give loads of advice. It felt like there was always someone in our corner, rooting for us. I can't count the number of websites I've gone to thatI will probably use in my own classroom. There are so many resources available and also the chance to share a discovery of your own with others. It's one big community, but also like a family.
I truly enjoyed being a part of the Tapped In community and hope to continue checking in and communicating with such great mentors. I think this would be a great tool for a first year teacher. I can already anticipate the number of questions or dilemmas I will run across during the first year and with Tapped In available, I know all of my questions will be answered. Thank you to all of the mentors who contribute to the site. I'm sure it takes a lot of time and dedication. Just know you are truly appreciated.
