I have a teacher facebook. I'm very careful of what I post and use this social media platform as a way to connect with my students and their families, both former and current. It's completely separate from my personal account. There's nothing I put on my page I wouldn't share with my principal or superintendent.
When I discovered there was a third in the Al Capone... series, I took to facebook to let my students know. Here was the almost immediate reaction:
Yes, my student responded almost immediately with giddy excitement. These moments make my job worthwhile. I won't have to tell the rest of the group, this student will do it for me and most likely today or tomorrow morning at recess.
These are my students.
