Contacting you here because I can't message on twitter (you got to friend me!). Great stuff with ELT chat and I used the page I mentioned http://eflclassroom.com/eltchat to introduce new teachers to twitter and I can also set so we can just have our own debates. so the couple online classes I have plus here, can find ELT Chat which is the quickest way I know to get a new teacher set up with websites, contacts , pln etc...

I"m finally getting around to some greetings. Used to greet everyone but now just too darn busy around here...but that's good.
I love your blog and hope to spend some more time there. I've put it up in our member's directory so others might find you. I like the post about the Alligator. Reminded me of Marco Polo and his frustrations to categorize and describe a rhino when he saw one in Indonesia. He finally categorized it as a unicorn!
Look forward to hearing more about your teaching and teacher training...cheers,
