Read to Lead! #azk12chat

With so many books and online resources available, teachers can become inundated with the amount of reading necessary to stay current on teaching as a profession. The Arizona K12 Center recognizes that educators want to stay current on topics that impact their classrooms, while interacting with others who share the same passions and interests. But with the busy schedules of teaching professionals, little time is spent on the powerful process of connecting with others on how this reading impacts classroom practice. The Arizona K12 Center is introducing #azk12chat as a unique opportunity that makes connecting with other professionals ACCESSIBLE and AFFORDABLE, simply by tapping the power of collegial conversation.
