#TeacherFriends Twitter Chat: End of Year Celebrations + Excellence


We continue with our weekly Twitter Chat and it is amazing from week to week who we meet, the discoveries we make, the friendships that emerge and the support that continues to be extended and grows stronger over time. 

Tonight we welcome an amazing woman into our spotlight. 
Katie Mense will be sharing her thoughts about how to conclude the school year with excellence, excitement and energy! 

Katie has oh-so-recently just had BRAIN SURGERY. 
I just saw on FB last night that her diagnosis is the best possible for the concerns that have been ongoing. 

Despite her being out of the classroom and recovering, 
she wanted to proceed with our date previously selected. What a trooper! 

That makes her a true champion in my book. 
A REAL survivor of life's unexpected twists and turns!!! 

These are the questions that she designed for our chat. 

The other reality in Katie's life right now is that her grandmother's wake is exactly tonight, at the time of the chat. So unfortunately Katie will not be able to chat with us in real time. She will be focused on her family and sharing stories of the legacy generated by a life well lived and well loved.

Katie has gone the extra, extra, extra mile and in the midst of her family's loss and her own health concerns, she has "scheduled" her answers via the magic of Tweetdeck. 


Katie will be giving away four gift certificates of $25 to four lucky participants! 
 In order to be eligible to win prizes: 
enter your name on our Google Doc. 
Prizes will be awarded at the end of chat! 

I will give both of my "End of Year" songs
to another winner!
