Proud to be your Wikineighbour
Hi Alison, I've been keeping track of your professional development as Wikieducator. I'm very proud to meet you and to be one of your first contacts in our community. Thanks for your enthusiastic and valuable contributions. --Gladys Gahona 14:41, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
What a coincidence that you left this message today. I was thinking (in the shower) earlier this morning that I wanted to leave you a note saying how it was you that helped me find a place to be on Wikieducator and to be confident in those first few weeks about what I could contribute. And the best thanks I can offer is that I am "paying it forward" by offering friendship and guidance to other newcomers. For example, I've been encouraging Nedal, as you encouraged me. It's fun and I do learn a lot.
Did you see that Wayne posted (a few weeks ago now) about the possibility of a partnership with Connexions. I decided to stop work for a bit on statistics material because there is quite a bit of very good material in Connexions, and it'd be silly for me to copy and adapt when it might happen automatically. I figured I'd give it a few months and then check in to see how likely.
Gladys, you are doing such wonderful work here on wikieducator. I too am glad to have gotten to know you in those very first days. Thanks so much for your friendship.
