The first #LINCchat of the new school year was a fantastic way to get ideas to build community as we start our new classes. Thank-you to moderators, Svetlana Lupasco (@StanzaSL), and Bonnie Jean Nicholas (@EALstories filling in for @nathanghall) for facilitating the conversation.
It was so much fun chatting with new and old #LINCchatters: @AidaAganagic, @michellekkotko, @LearnanaBodnar, @a1zzhang, @seburnt, @JenArtan, @shafaqmkhan, @danalbergman, @LINCInstructor, @thespreadingoak, @DawnTorvik, @gabyG_jolie, @Agnes_Kucharska, @ambartosik, and @CameronJMoser. We were so happy that @nathanghall dropped in to say “hello” near the end of the chat after his class ended.
