    I know that most of us don't really know one another unless we're "friends" on social media. If you could meet one member in person, though, who would it be?

    I would like to meet @czacza because she's a seasoned teacher, knowledgeable, and confident--yet stylish and young at heart. I'd love to have a lunch date with her.

    I would also like to meet @futuremathsprof. I would rather not go into detail about my reasoning behind that one! lol.

    ETA: I just realized that I named two people! :)

    I've met Ms.Jasztal. Met her this past summer. She hasn't been on here in a long time but we are friends on FB. And I've met Mommaruthie. She is an old timer like me.

    I would like to meet Ima Teacher. I'm friends with her and a few others on here on FB, too.

    Admittedly, I'd probably also choose futuremathsprof, partly out of curiosity of how well he matches another person I've worked with (in a different setting), since there's sooooo many similarities.

    Since you cheated, I'll cheat too, and say that it'd also be interesting to meet otterpop - since we both teach intermediate and have similar views in many areas.

    I would love to meet YTG—he always has solid advice, and as an aspiring administrator, I’d love to pick his brain!

    I would have loved to meet Alice — I’ve missed her here.
    I’d love to meet Teacher Groupie. She’s got mad English skills!

    Honestly I wouldn't really love meeting anyone from here. The anonymity is what we come here for, BUT, if FMP made a vlog, I wouldn't not watch it....

    I would love to meet Teacher234. That user is wonderful. Right, does everyone agree? I do!
    Teacher234 definitely did not post this.

    I've met a couple of members (including a former poster I knew from college) and have talked with a few others over the phone. Out of everyone here, I'd probably like to meet Teacher Groupie over a drink and a lot of puns.

    I’d love to meet Vickilyn to pick her brain and learn from some of her experience as a Science teacher.

    Well, I don’t know to say. I would like to meet you as you sound like an awesome administrator. However, why aren’t you willing to go into detail? Do you wish to insult me face to face or something, lol?

    I say this because you aren’t willing to say here, it seems.

    Hahaha! I don’t know why, but people tell me to make vlogs all the time. Maybe it’s because I’m so opinionated and speak differently, I don’t know.

    Appearance wise, I would look like a high-school student as I’m very young looking for my age (26). Just imagine someone with very light brown skin, green eyes, a sharp jawline (I had plastic surgery several months ago to get a more refined jawline and I love it!), wavy brown hair, is 5’7.5” (I know I’m short, don’t say anything!), and has an extroverted and opinionated personality.

    I’m not particularly social IRL, so really meeting people would not be high on my list even if I find them interesting. However, I’m FB friends with several from here and a few other forums, and I enjoy that a lot.

    I would love to meet many of the old timers. Those who have been here a long time. Catnfiddle, TeacherGroupie, Special Preschool, ImaTeacher, Czaza, and many more.

    They all seem like super cool people.

    @TeacherGroupie
    @czacza
    And Alice, and Sarge. Major too, actually, though our political views differed ... mmm... greatly.

    I’ve been MIA for a bit, but there are so many people here who I’d like to meet. Czacza and I would have much to talk about. I did meet a former member, silverspoon, at an awards banquet. We were both recognized but we only had a few minutes to talk.

    Let me lead by saying that choosing a single member was not a task I was good at. I actually have a list that includes those who are different in many ways. I feel that many of the members are straight forward - what you see posted tells you volumes about the individual. @czacza is one of those who I enjoy following, but I think that she is just like her posts, and I appreciate that every time I read her insights.

    Highly interesting to me are some of the members who I know are NOT in my geographical area, unlike @czacza. Sometimes where we are directly affects our view of things and actions. I would love to expand what I know and could learn from the following:
    @TeacherGroupie
    @Backroads
    @MrsC.
    @swansong1
    @YoungTeacherGuy

    Several others come to mind as interesting, which is probably why I continue to visit here. I would like to think that if we are true to our nature when we post, it would be a pleasure to meet many of my forum friends.

    My journey to finding a teaching job started in 2013. My "originals" that I'd find cool to meet would be czacza and Caesar just to shake their hands and telling me to remain calm, relaxed, and not to give up. Then others along the journey would be Linguist, Vickilyn, and YoungTeacherGuy. Another set of handshakes for helping me sort out issues with the "You can resign and look for a job and if I can't find your replacement and you can't find a job, I'll hire you back" guy..... ;) Also, there was someone here named Alice....

    UPDATE: Just happened to find that LONG thread concerning above. I might have to shake 30 hands and meet everyone!

    By the way does anyone here have Instagram? I'd love to see how you lovely educators live your life and what you do for fun. I think IG is less personal than FB. I'm actually connected to one person from here.
    My name on Instagram is hun.tress.308 (if you follow me, message me you're from here so I follow you back)

    I have done sports forums and political forums (they were connected) and have had meet ups in local restaurants. Tailgates at games (see my avatar). It has been fun. czazcza would be my choice. I have read her stuff in here for a LONG time.........I just read that Ive been here since 2003.

    If I ever met Caesar, I’d ask, “What’s a hoosband?” and “How many people have you convinced to relocate to Las Vegas?” ;)

    That's cheating. I have a fake leg I'd get called out instantly. You're all lovely not sure I could pick one to meet over the others.

    1. It’s probably not the clothes but the walk that would give it away?
