Are you finding yourself spending more  time online developing and re-purposing content to create an online presence for your students?  Do you consider yourself a modern or digital teacher?  According to Jeff Dunn (edumemic), there are 8 characteristics that describe a twenty-first century educator.  A twenty-first century teacher should be an adapter, communicator, learner, visionary, leader, model, collaborator and risk-taker.  Mind you, it would take a super-hero to embody all of these characteristics at once.  Instead, a twenty-first century educator should be able to “pull from experience and be a leader, a collaborator, or a communicator at a moment’s notice” (Dunn, 2013).
