profiles of math teachers who blog and twitter
Here are some videos of teachers explaining why they joined up with the mathtwitterblogosphere. We have teachers of all sorts, from novice to master, guys and girls, and from all over, teaching everything under the sun. The one commonality that we all share is a passion for our craft, and a desire to get a little bit better each year.
