It’s such an exciting time in education! Social media has opened doors for new ways of connecting with teachers across the country. My favorite part of blogging is networking with so many educators in various stages in their careers. I love hearing from college students majoring in education, brand new teachers and teachers nearing retirement who have been revitalized with this new platform of collaborating. It’s also so much fun finding new ”virtual friends” who share your views and similar passions in education. I’d like to introduce you to my new friend, Melissa Taylor, from Imagination Soup.
Melissa’s passion is finding playful ways to engage children in reading and writing. Melissa’s blog, Imagination Soup, has won numerous awards including the PBS Kids VIP Blog and the Scholastic Parent and Child Magazine Best Reading and Blog.
Melissa is an educational consultant and a freelace writer! She’s even had articles published in USA Today, Parenting, and Scholastic Parent and Child. Here’s the best part. Melissa has a brand new book that is released today (November 15th). She sent me an advanced copy to read and it’s filled with helpful advice for parents.
Oh, did I mention that Melissa mentioned Make, Take & Teach in her book!
