Mud and Ink on Periscope

Periscope is a new platform developed by Twitter.  During Periscope chats, you can catch me live for discussion and professional development.  This is different from YouTube:  in these videos, you will be hearing the live conversation that I had with the people "in the room" during the time of the scope.  They are informal, casual videos that allow teachers to talk together about their lessons and curriculum!


Send me an email at with your request any time!

Check out my latest Periscopes here on the website, or head over to for the full archives of professional development videos!
