"I just always knew that I wanted to teach. I am the oldest of nine children and growing up, whenever we played school, I was always the teacher."
Bennie J. Williams-Roper
“My fourth grade teacher Mrs. Colepits. I always seemed to understand the homework faster than my peers so she would let me teach other students in my class and lead projects. I knew from that point on that I loved teaching.”

What is inspiration?
A fleeting glimpse, a moment of clarity, a sudden impulse triggered, that leads to a spark of creativity.
Our PLN inspires us daily by sharing ideas, suggestions, feedback and support and this was the reason behind #INZpirED. A new global collaborative chat on Twitter with a single point agenda of inspiring educators in countries where students don't benefit from modern pedagogical techniques.
We hope that our PLN supports and shares their expertise on a wide variety of topics relevant to developing educators and hopefully inspiring each other as well.
#INZpirED - Every Saturday 9:30 AM IST, 5 PM New Zealand time, 8 PM PST
