Dear Jordan Educator 2018 participants,
Welcome to the Dragons community and your course’s Yak Board! You can think of your Yak Board as an online group journal and virtual bulletin board. It is blank now, but in the approaching weeks, it will come alive with our own journeys and stories and our own intentional community of travelers and educators.
With your course just around the corner, we are excited to begin the final stages of course preparation with you. Launching this Yak Board marks the first step towards building your course community, as this interface will help us bridge great geographic distances and connect you with your instructors, your fellow Dragons participants, and the Boulder Admin Team. You can expect your instructors to introduce themselves shortly.
We invite you to begin your journey with a personal introduction. In your post, please answer these three prompts:
1) What led you to your vocation as an educator?
2) Why is this course important to you? To our society? To our students?
3) What do you hope to get out of this experience?

All our best,
Dragons Admin Team
