Maha,
Since I’ve “met” you through the #fedwiki, I’ve subscribed to your blog, and I have to tell you, I’m in the same boat. It’s the end of the academic quarter here, so I haven’t had a chance to say “Yes, Maha, me too!” or “Wow, what you said!” or “She’s so smart, and I’m going work with her. Woohoo!”

Even this post isn’t as thoughtful as I’d like to be–my list of things to do today is massive. I’m a relative newbie to the edtech field, but I know what you are talking about both with your profession and personal life (I’ll blog about that later). In the last year and a half, I’ve jumped into the deep end of the pool (that sometimes feels like an ocean), and I’m constantly learning what I don’t know. The #fedwiki just seems like another place to expose myself as a starstruck newbie.

FWIW, I was planning on contacting you if I needed support because you seem like a woman I can trust. I’m also comfortable contacting the guys running this show as well, but I wanted to respond to this post bc I should have told you this sooner. Damn you, to do list.
