#ILookLikeAProfessor: A Twitter Essay

There’s a wonderful hashtag on Twitter – #ILookLikeAProfessor – that has recently been doing the kind of good work that Twitter is so excellent at facilitating: creating conversation and community among an otherwise widely dispersed group of people. I wrote a short Twitter essay as a modest contribution to this lively conversation, and Eileen Clancy (@clancynewyork) generously Storified it so that you can read the whole thing by heading over to this link.  Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this ongoing conversation!
