Amazing Stories of Sharing

Alan Levine put out a call for other educators to contribute Amazing Stories of Sharing. He wanted to

to celebrate the Amazing Stories of things that happen to educators when they share something openly on the web. We are asking our colleagues to share with us a video of their own stories of something surprising, valuable, powerful, or just plain inspiring that happened when that piece of media, that document, that video, that blog post, became valuable to someone they did not know before.

Andrea Hernandez and I were up to the challenge and put together this short video “Blogging Serendipity” about how she had just started blogging and had read the Langwitches Blog when, by chance,  we sat next to each other at a conference. From learning virtually with and from each other on blogs and Twitter, we ended up being physical colleagues working in the same school.
