So I have been on twitter for a while and towards the end of 2012, I have become a lot more involved with all things education. Thanks to an awesome teacher @ Flinders University – Selena Woodward 🙂 ( @teachertechnol )

I have been chatting with educators around Australia and around the world! It has been an eye opener as to how twitter can help educators.

So Saturday night I was posting inspirational quotes and images.


2After some sharing and discussions Melissa (@MelissaMulh ) suggested making a new hash tag so everyone can share inspiration with each other.

LOVE IT! Such a good idea – Thanks Melissa!

So brainstorming began, turns out there is already some hash tags revolving around this idea, so I had to find an original one#

#teachersinspire was born 🙂

At the moment it is still a baby and growing with only a few people using this hash tag. I am hoping it will eventually take off so that educators on twitter can share their inspiration with everyone 🙂


It is my final year at Flinders!! Through out this year I am endeavouring to print and post similar quotes and images that I will be posting on twitter and stick them up around the education building. I am hoping to get pre-service teachers thinking beyond the university walls and to explore what else there is to offer, because it isn’t all about text books, the best teachers teach from the heart.
