My thought was "why SHOULDN'T we have met in some capacity before?" Just because we are from different cities, different school boards... why not consider the Internet as your virtual school hallway? Yeah, you gotta get out of your own classroom and make an effort to find out what's happening with someone else. Yeah, it takes a little effort and a little time but look at the benefit. Energized teaching, improved learning experiences for your students, maybe avoiding spending $200 on a resource that might not be as perfectly suited for you as you thought... or finding out that it is, and having someone help you word your pitch for the principal! Maybe saving time on planning a lesson if you swap a few PowerPoint mini-lectures you've each put together or co-plan some learning centres. Isn't it worth it? I sure think so!!
