Two Year Anniversary
Two years ago I launched PETsNet that stands for Peruvian English Teachers Network. This name was chosen in the spirit of NING Platform that empowers educators to create academic and social networks.
PETsNet is engaged in Language Teacher Education, Teacher Training, Professional Development, Personal Learning Network, ICT in Education, and aims to inspire, innovate, empower, & transform the professional development of English teachers nationwide and worldwide.
Over two years, hundreds of English teachers visited and/or joined PETsNet, and I have gladly met colleagues from all over Peru and abroad. A great deal of their professional experiences and contributions are published on PETsNet Ning. I think that most of PETsNeters have reached the conclusion that working together for the common good is a must.
The Two Year Anniversary of PETsNet marks a significant point in my PD’s improving, and provides a testament to the success of the purposes of PETsNet. Up to now, PETsNet has grown to 550 members including novice and experienced English teachers from different schools, language centers, institutes, universities, etc.
I always had dreams for PETsNet, but I never realized what could actually happen in a relatively short period of time. I try to do my best, but I couldn't do it alone. Finally, I am truly grateful for all the solidarity and support from all users of PETsNet.
