Cindy’s advice for future teachers:

  • Future teachers are so passionate about their career and it contagious!
  • Future teachers need to find connections and build relationships with each other and with educators around the world through a PLN.
  • Connect by listening to webinars, podcasts, & participating in twitter chats.
  • You can also get involved in professional organizations for a small amount of money as a future teacher member.
  • Never stop learning keep going!
