Social Media for Family Engagement and Professional Growth


On June 25, 2013, I will have the honor of presenting at The 86th Annual Virginia Middle and High School Principals Conference and Exposition held on June 23 –June 26, 2013 at the Homestead in Hot Springs, Virginia.  The Expo is sponsored by the Virginia Association of Secondary School Principals (VASSP), a professional association of middle and high school administrators.  The presentation will focus on how building level administrators may develop professional learning network (PLN) and leverage social media for the purposes of family engagement and professional growth.  Participants will gain a working knowledge of Twitter, Linkedin, Piktochart, Facebook, Pinterest, Flipboard, Google+, GoogleDocs, WordPress, and other social media.  Additionally, participants will learn how Facebook can be used as a highly effective medium for celebrating school successes, engaging parents and families, and shaping conversations about public education.
