"A butcher, a baker, a candlestick maker" - that's how +Bobbi Capwell, (educator, Technology Integration Specialist, SimpleK12 Ambassador, DEN Star, lifelong learner) describes the members of her PLN. She might have a literal butcher, baker and candlestick maker in her PLN, but what she is really trying to describe is the diverse nature of her group. There is someone in her group who can provide support no matter what her need or question.
That's what we need to create when we are building our PLN. Focus on your needs as an educator. But, don't forget to think about your skills and what you have that you can share with others. Create a support system for yourself that increases your professional knowledge, encourages you and is (sometimes) just plain fun!
