humbled and uplifted

Today I attended the Iowa 1:1 Institute.  It was a wonderful day of learning and connections.  I was very humbled and uplifted at the same time today.  I had multiple people stop me to make the face to face connection from our conversations virtually on Twitter.

I was also reminded of that saying,  "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"  Sometimes I wonder if a tweet or blog post I write make an influence.

I was told by a few Twitter friends today that they had started using KidBlog in their classroom because they heard about it from me.  One person thanked me for connecting with teachers at his school on Twitter. I have had a difficult last couple weeks personally and professionally.  It was uplifting today to hear that what I do and share has made an impact on classrooms other than my own.  Thank you to those of you who shared those tidbits today.  It's the little things that make a big difference!

What can you do to uplift someone this week?
