My Professional Learning Community

My journey into inquiry and building a professional learning community started at the International School of Amsterdam in the 1980s where I became part of a cohort of teachers who were dedicated
to improving our practice through reflection. The first steps were taken as part of a community of inquirers within the school, and the experiences were to provide an invaluable foundation for what was to come as the journey continued to the New International School of Thailand in Bangkok. There, as one of many international schools in a large city, my community expanded to include teachers from other local schools who met regularly to discuss practice. Later, with new developments in social networking, when my journey took me back to Europe, I found that my professional learning community changed into a network of educators I have never met in person, yet who have supported me through the interactions we have online.  Now that I'm in India I still have this wonderful PLN of course, but I feel I'm back in a learning community at my own school again.  Here is my professional learning community:
