"I am not a teacher---
only a fellow traveler of whom you asked the way.
I pointed ahead---
ahead of myself as well as of you."
-- George Bernard Shaw

Welcome! I'm Lani Ritter Hall.
I retired from the classroom after 35 exceptional years with middle and high school students in a variety of settings (mostly urban) and subjects. A 2003 NBCT, I ended my classroom journey designing and teaching an innovative program for high schoolers who planned to become teachers.

Now from home in Chardon, OH I frequently mentor students on their blogs, have worked on teams to design online professional development for Ohio teachers, and am thrilled to enter my third year with PLP as a community leader.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, perhaps this snapshot of where I am, and where I've been may serve as a window into some of my passions. Other passions that can't be located on a map include the privilege to serve for 2 years on the leadership team of the K12Online Conference as continuity editor and co convener, and participation in CCK08, a massive open online course (Connectivism and Connective Knowledge).

I'm delighted to have this opportunity to continue to learn and grow with you.
