Brain Bushart
 has taken professional development to a new level over the past week.  Under the hashtag #rrmathrocksyou can follow a group of elementary teachers as they begin to explore the #MTBoS and much of the awesomeness it has to offer.  If you're looking for ways to fire up you grade level or department's PD you'll want to check out his last two posts.

On day one, Brain challenged teachers to join Twitter and begin collaborating with our amazing online community.  If you’re reading this, you should pop on over to their RRISD Math Rocks Blog and post a comment to one of their teacher blogs (located on the right hand side).  

One of the biggest take-aways from #TMC15 was that we need more elementary folk involved in this community... and Brian has taken the lead.
