Hi Tami, Welcome aboard. I have only been online since last November and
subscribed to the Getty list over spring break. I love it. It makes you
feel so connected to people who have like interests. District meetings
encompass all grade levels and the attendant politics and personality
conflicts. There is very little of that type of thing on this list.
Everyone is helpful, sharing, generous, etc. The topics discussed encompass
a range of grade levels, content, interests, approaches and problem solving.
If anyone needs information, the have a vast body of knowledge and
experience to plumb on this list. I think anyone who is serious about their
teaching should join a list like this. It expands a teachers knowledge
base, diffuses the feeling of isolation that special teachers sometimes
feel, provides invaluable resources and information, and proves invaluable
in developing an academic support network. I started a list for middle
school art teachers, but find myself responding to the Getty list more
often. I also subscribe to a grad. group list. The more specialized lists
seem to flounder for lack of participation.
Thank heaven for the Getty "Good Guys".
Linda K.
