Staying Connected

As the school year begins, I am reflecting on how I stayed connected with colleagues this summer. I used Facebook almost every day to see what others were doing and share what I was up to. This may sound like a simple thing, but it really has helped me to feel connected with the other staff who work in my building. I look forward to seeing them at inservice and working with them this year.

What I am pondering is how I can use this to connect with parents and students. Is this an appropriate medium to have a "professional" account which would be separate from my "personal" account that I use with family and friends? I would appreciate your thoughts and comments on this. What do you think?
