About Me
Hello. My name is John Costilla. I am an educator with more than 20 years in working with public education. I am currently an advisor to a free social community for teachers - WeAreTeachers and work for an education partner. Thanks for allowing me to grow and learn via EdubloggerCon, NECC Unplugged and here on CL20.

Classroom teacher, instructional specialist/trainer, consultant and now member of WeAreTeachers community development efforts. Eager to meet and learn something new everyday.
Hi and welcome to my Classroom 2.0 page. A little about what I'm doing with Web 2.0 tools... I've joined an organization that is not only using the Web 2.0 tools to allow teachers to share, collaborate and learn, but to also earn...basically giving teachers the ability to create and publish their knowledge and share in their own online marketplace. It's really taking the best of the Classroom and move all who impart knowledge into the business of teaching... I invite any friends to join me @

NING moves to Cha Ching $$$

Posted on April 15, 2010 at 1:31pm 1 Comment

While I understand the business model and can appreciate the efforts necessary in this down economy, it really does create a wake up call to think about. We saw this earlier last year… Continue

Good morning John,
Thank you for inviting me to your world here in Classroom 2.0. I am sorry it has taken me so long to accept your gracious invitation but I have been out of the country and away from computer access for months. I am back and excited to start sharing ideas again.

I appreciate the invite John - certainly the concept of the we are teachers initiative is of interest.

Not unlike the freelance networking tools that are available to link abilities with needs to negotatite a price.
