Have you all discovered Twitter yet? Not being a hip young thing, I didn’t see how it could be useful.
Boy, was I wrong. I’ve connected with educators and parents all over the country.
Twitter is kind of like a cocktail party where everyone’s talking at once. It can take you a while to find the right people.
Here are some of my favorites. They provide a plethora of useful information curated from all over the web.
Claire Griffith @directhitsfan
Claire is the author of my favorite vocab books: Direct Hits Vocabulary. She also runs a SAT/ACT tutoring company down in Georgia. (Here’s her list of SAT Resources including links to blogs, tutors, and testing info.) She’s just as lovely and helpful in person as she is online.
Suzanne Shaffer @suzanneshaffer
Suzanne’s website is Parents Countdown to College Coach. She’s a mom who has successfully navigated the college maze for her own two children and now helps other parents do the same. Suzanne has a list of 50 more twitter accounts every parent should follow.
Wendy David-Gaines @pocsmom
Another mom who is a college-prep expert and blogs at College Prep for Parents of College-bound Students.
John Carpenter @askjohnabout
John is a college admission advisor and wrote the terrific Going Geek: What Every Smart Kid (and Every Smart Parent) Should Know About College Admissions. His website is Ask John About College. He’s amazingly kind and generous with sharing his knowledge and expertise.
Stacey Howe-Lott @stellarscores
Not surprisingly, I focus primarily on SAT-related information.
