    My name is Courtney Burner and I am currently enrolled in Leadership Program for my Masters. Presently, I am taking a Technology course. I was hoping you would be able to answer some questions for me. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the educational material on your blog/Twitter. It is clear to see you are a motivational leader. I read about how you are a principal and I am aspiring to be one as well. Would you mind sharing what encouraged you to blog and use technology to communicate? By using resources like Twitter, have you found any benefits of improvement in communication or organizational efficiency? Has using technology helped you be a lead learner to your staff? I just entered into the blogging world. If you have any suggestions for me, I am more than willing to take any advice. Here is my link: If you have time, I would truly appreciate if you could respond. Thank you for your time. Have a wonderful day.
