Paul Bogush is creating a list of interview questions for his student teacher. I added this to his list:
"Tell me about your PLN. Explain how you interact and its importance to your professional development and growth."
If I were an administrator this would definitely be a question I would ask of any teacher I interviewed.
I would also be asking it of my staff after I modeled how valuable mine was to them.
I have only met a few members of my PLN face-to-face and have never seen any of them teach a class, but somehow I feel very confident that they are excellent teachers that I would hire in a second.
PLN as litmus test. Legitimate or not?
