Couples Twittering for Education- Eric and Melissa Sheninger

Interview 2 of Couples Twittering for Education

sheninger familyWhen I first joined Twitter a little over a year ago I was excited to connect with several passionate educators transforming their school environments. One of these educators is Eric Sheninger, (@NMHS_Principal), the Principal of New Milford High School. We finally met at the 140 Conference in LA as part of the education panel. At this conference, I also met Melissa Sheninger, (@Pags21), who is an incredible educator herself. She joined Twitter shortly after the conference.

The Tri-State Educational Technology Conference (TSETC)

Note that this interview took place in January. The reason I’m posting this now is because I want to also share the news about this exciting free technology conference that will take place at Eric Sheninger’s High School on Saturday, October 2nd. The Tri-State Educational Technology Conference, sponsored by Schoology, is a free technology conference taking place in New Jersey. You have till Friday, September 10th to submit a proposal. I highly recommend attending this free conference. Register here! There will even be a free bus provided for those who live in New York.
