  1. As one of the early #langchat moderators, I want to echo everything my wonderful friends and colleagues, Diego and Sara Elizabeth, have said about the chat! I couldn’t have added anything of substance to what they have already said, so all I will do is give a shout out to you both, and say to the rest of us, join the chat and share your ideas. You will grow as a teacher and feel reinvigorated for participating! Besides, it’s fun, too. This is dr_dmd, Don, Monsieur PBLL saying well done to Diego & Sara Elizabeth!

We would love to hear from you! Join the conversation by leaving a comment.
