    Some of you may remember Mrs Powell. She has gone on to host her own blog and includes this description of AtoZ as part of a listing of teacher forums (5-14-09):


    AtoZTeacherStuff was the first set of message boards I used back in 2001, and I have several longtime internet buddies on AtoZ who helped me through many rough times and transitions. The site's creator, Amanda, is an amazing and resourceful woman who carefully moderates the forums and makes sure the entire website is full of useful and relevant resources for teachers. The message board archives are fully searchable, so you can find ideas on nearly any topic. Because members post personal profiles and interact regularly, there is a great sense of community at AtoZ and a positive, encouraging tone to the discussions.

    Hmm... I remember a cryptic message posted by someone about being surprised if we knew who she really was . . . now the wheels are turning :lol: I agree with everything she says especially since I pretty much avoided the political discussions ;)

    How true - I just spilled my guts out on the "Worried" thread - things I hardly ever say out loud to even my closest friends. THANKS to everyone here :)

    And look how many people posted their bra sizes on the 'unprofessional dress' thread!

    Ummmm. Even if I had a matching set, I'm afraid that that particular info would be left off any of my posts:lol:

    I agree because even if you disclose some info either embarrassing like a bra size or venting about your school or job search we are all on here to help each other out and keep a positive board which I think is greatly helped by us having to register to post and having great moderators as well.

    Absolutely true! I read the posts here long before I even wrote anything. I truly believe other teachers are our best resources - even if it is to vent to! I feel like I know people on here just from the words they've posted - I tell stories by saying "guess what happened to friend of mine" and it's a story that was posted here! ;)

    I completely missed the bra size thing-that's just hilarious.
