Published by Tia M. Dawson

There are many things that define who I am as a person. First of all, I am a mother of 3 wonderful children! I can not express how fortunate we are to have our children in our life! Secondly, I am an elementary educator who recently returned to the classroom after 12+ years as an elementary school administrator. Lastly, I am passionate about helping others, learning about abuse, helping others in abusive relationships, and helping others understand their worth.

  1. Thanks for adding me to your great list Tia. As you’ve stated, there’s a great network of learners on Twitter, and we work together to deepen our practice and explore new ideas. Without all of us, it wouldn’t work. Just happy to be here and part of the conversation with you all.

    1. Hi Ron,

      Yes, we are a great group of learners first! That’s why it works so well – learning from and sharing with each other.

      Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment,

  2. Thank you Tia for including me on this list. I know I shouldn’t care, but it nice to be on someone’s list. I too think Twitter is a marvelous place where people share with open hearts. It has revitalized and changed my teaching in the last 3 yrs.
    I love reading your blog and find all of your post interesting. I have passed on many of your posts as links to folks I work with.
    Thank you,

    1. Sarah,

      Thanks for reading and commenting. I am glad that you find my blog interesting. It has been a journey, for sure.

      I enjoy reading your blog as well.

      Thanks again,
