I used to post weekly collections of my best tweets, and used Storify to bring them together.
Unfortunately, Storify went under.
Fortunately, however, Wakelet was a new tool that was able to import all of a person’s Storifys. So you can see all those previous Twitter “Best” lists here.

I don’t want to risk putting all the work into those posts again and risk losing them all.
So, instead of creating weekly “Best” lists of tweets, I’m going to use Twitter analytics to determine my most popular ones and embed them directly here in posts. That way, the only way they’d go away would be if Twitter itself went out of business.
So, here are my most popular tweets from the past thirty days or so:
I’v been teaching high school 4 over 20 yrs & am very good at my job. Even with all that, I have 2 now do a ‘re-set’ in 1 of my classes because of a variety of challenges I should have dealt with earlier.I don’t think anyone ever gets this teaching business ever completely ‘down’

A challenge facing many of us who teach ELL Newcomers- which doesn’t receive as much recognition or appreciation as it should – is the constant influx of new students throughout the year. I love teaching ELLs, but I find that this particular dynamic takes a lot of energy

Last day of school before Winter Break. I’m sure students will be very focused on academic work today

Just had privilege of reading advance copy of this forthcoming new book by @GholdyM . "Cultivating Genius" was amazing, & I loved it. Have to say this new 1 might be even MORE amazing! I can't think of an educator who won't b a better teacher after reading it,& that includes me https://t.co/wDFFM3rE8A

I care deeply about my students. By this time of the year, I am also soooooooooo tired of writing letters of recommendation. Of course, I write them uncomplainingly (to students). But, colleges & uni admission programs, you gain no fans from secondary tchrs 4 requiring them
