Sharing Web Resources

I decided to subscribe to the Children's Defense Fund newsletter. I had not heard of this website and once I logged on, I found it to be very interesting and useful for my job.                                                                   Here is a link to the website  http://www.childrensdefense.org/---I think you will enjoy all the information/resources this website offers!

The January newsletter is not online, so I read over the December newsletter. This newsletter featured a link to the CDF's YouTube channel!!! If you are like me (or my 4 year old daughter), YouTube is viewed quite frequently. The YouTube videos that are featured are inspirational testimonies.I think hearing inspirational stories from others will remind you why you have chosen this career path. I know I am reassured that I am doing what I was meant to do!!!
 Here is the CDF's YouTube link:  http://www.youtube.com/childrensdefense

I think you will enjoy!!!

I am glad that you like the resource link that you chose. I chose Educational World Weekly as my resource. This web-site has a lot of valuable up-to date information on the current issues and trends.

Rebekah,

It worked out well that you can not only use this resource for your education but for your career as well. Please post how the information from the Children's Defense Fund was used in your career! I look forward to hearing about your experience!!!

What a great site. I have actually never checked out. There seems to be a lot of useful information on it. It is now on my favorites bar! Thanks.

We both chose the same one! You are right, the YouTube videos are awesome! I guess I think a video that inspires me to action is a good one. Maybe one that inspires a few tears as well :)

I will be viewing the testimonies on YouTube as soon as I post this comment. I love the videos that are shared there. Thank you for sharing this resource. Do you have a particular video that you would suggest?
