The Importance of Learning Communities

At one time I thought I could go it alone in my career. Totally disappointed with the political undertones in the world, I hoped to keep myself out of the employment “muck” by withdrawing from the cliquishness in society. I was wrong – I can’t make a difference by myself – and I shouldn’t have to. Neither should you. But, I’ve also learned that I don’t have to be the voice of reason either. I just have to be an example to others so they might find some direction through my success and failure. Learning communities really do matter to educators, whether  you are a classroom teacher, a coach, a mentor to kids or in any other capacity trying to make a difference in the world. Having support helps. To read more about the importance of learning communities check out Real Learning through Learning Communities.:
