When I am at a loss for inspiration, I just check my PLN on Twitter using the #NGSSblogs hashtag. There I find others just like me, being vulnerable by sharing triumphs and struggles, resources and reflections. They remind me that NGSS implementation is not going to be easy, but it most definitely does not have to be alone.
I encourage you to not carry this weight on your own. Join us. Follow #NGSSblogs. Share to the hashtag and give feedback to those brave enough to lay out their experiences for the benefit of all. This network has made a tremendous difference in my practice and continues to move my thinking each time I participate. I believe it can do the same for you.
I look forward to sharing the highlights of this community with your here in our spotlight. We will be transitioning to a deeper spotlight once a month that will highlight top resources and reflections both at the conceptual and the classroom levels. See you soon!
